Legislative Updates and Advocacy

Financial Aid Advocacy

Financial aid advocacy is an ongoing effort, as federal and state budgets are decided annually with implementation set for the start of each fiscal year, July 1. We are committed to advocating for financial aid protections on behalf of our students.

The Financial Aid Administration office actively informs students and the larger campus community through electronic correspondences, in person presentations, and attendance at related public events to spread awareness about legislative movements that may limit, change, or alter financial aid accessibility and regulations on federal and state levels. Further, we circulate noteworthy updates and advocacy information, and create Change.org petitions on an as-needed basis.

Interested student groups, faculty, campus leaders, and departments are always welcome to contact our office to discuss ways to join student aid advocacy movements.
