The Office of Student Financial Assistance
(OSFA) administers several state student financial aid programs. Those programs
include grants, scholarships, and loan repayment programs. For each program,
you will find program criteria, statutes and agency rules governing the
program, and guidance used to administer the program within the State Financial
Aid Officer Manual.
Financial Aid Officer Manual
The Office of Student Financial Assistance updates manual
chapters for each of these programs as applicable. Some chapters may be updated
more often than others. Institutions are required to read all e-mail and
written correspondence from the Office to keep informed of any changes in
policy or guidance. Changes announced during the interim have the full force
and effect of the Financial Aid Manual.
All participating institutions are responsible for designating a
contact and notifying the Office about changes to the campus contact
information; including name, e-mail address, and phone number.
The Financial Aid Manual listed below is the most current
version. Financial aid administrators and others responsible for executing some
or all of the program administration are expected to adhere to this guidance as
well as any interim guidance.
