Two-thirds of students receive some type of financial aid to attend college. Many of these are low-income, first-generation, and minority students. Verifying eligibility for federal financial aid—a complex, frustrating, and highly iterative process—can be a major hurdle for these students, often involving multiple rounds of corrections sent back and forth via fax machines or snail mail. Over 25% of students never make it through verification, many opting out of pursuing higher education entirely.
Financial aid processes and forms are overwhelmingly manual, tedious, and time-consuming for both students and financial aid staff. StudentForms from CampusLogic removes barriers, especially for at-risk students, by guiding them step-by-step through the entire process—from the device of their choice, 24/7, while also dramatically reducing the time spent by school staff in reviewing documents by up to 75%.
