COMMUNITY NEWS

ASSP improves student involvement in Aid process
On January 27, the Special Committee on Financial Aid gave a presentation to the ASSP Senate regarding their progress this year. The Special Committee, chaired by Executive Vice President James Pedrick and Vice President of Campus Activities Bri Clark, was created in November to evaluate the financial aid process and to create a mechanism for student input to be provided in it. The committee reported that they have met with the University and have recommended an increase in merit-based and need-based scholarships for continuing students, as well as an increase in awareness regarding the financial aid process and services. The committee is also proposing the creation of a permanent Student Financial Aid Committee, which will be voted on by the Constitutional Review Committee and the Senate shortly, and will make an additional report to the Senate after the University makes their decisions regarding financial aid this year. Contact James Pedrick at assp-execvp@spu.edu or 206-281-2499 with any questions. And be sure to access our Student Financial Aid Report at... [link]
