FVSU celebrates Financial Aid Awareness Month



Throughout the month of February, the higher education community celebrates Financial Aid Awareness Month in an effort to provide crucial information to students and families about access to federal, state and institutional aid. Fort Valley State University’s Office of Financial Aid (OFA) is planning events all month long, including a pizza party planned for students from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, February 17 in the Student Amenities Building lobby.
Students and parents are invited to visit the lobby of the C. V. Troup Administration Building Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to play educational games and learn something new about financial aid.
On Friday, Feb. 24, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., OFA will host live sessions on Facebook and Skype. Visitors are invited to like and follow the financial aid Facebook page and ask questions during the session. Skypers can video call and chat by connecting to FinancialAid@fvsu.edu or by sending contact details to pagea@fvsu.edu.
Next week, financial aid officials will host “Meet Your Financial Aid Advisor” in the Hunt Memorial Library.  At the event, guests will meet representatives responsible for processing files and awarding aid.
April 15 is FVSU’s Priority FAFSA Processing Deadline. The Office of Financial Aid is planning events in March and April to help students and families complete their FAFSA.
FVSU’s new financial aid director, Kimberly Morris, is excited about new developments in her office. “The OFA is making the verification process easier for students by going paperless. Students can compete and submit documents straight from your phone. No waiting in line to turn in paperwork, no long hold times on the phone waiting to see which documents are still missing,” she said.
“We, in the Office of Financial Aid, take pride in what we do and the role we play in students’ academic success. We thank students and parents for trusting us and allowing us to be a part of their experience at FVSU,” added Morris.
