Federal Student Aid Processing

Weber & Associates, Inc. provides full-service financial aid processing solutions to support the day-to-day activities of your financial aid office.  For more than 35 years, our experienced team has assisted institutions of all sizes with Title IV Federal Student Aid processing services for Pell Grant, Federal Direct Student Loan (FDSL), TEACH, and Campus-Based Aid programs, including Federal Work Study (FWS), Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), SMART Grant, and Perkins Loan programs.  Our processing services help your institution save time, reduce errors, and streamline administrative tasks.

Data Submission

Weber & Associates is committed to providing accurate and efficient processing services that support your institution's unique goals. We offer a “Traditional” financial aid packaging process whereby a school representative can initiate the financial aid package while working directly with the student and we offer the Virtual Financial Aid Office (VFAO™), where the student initiates the financial aid package request. Both the Traditional and VFAO™ service offerings are available online to users 24/7/365 and use proven processes and technologies to deliver top-quality service. Once we have received a financial aid package request, we review all of the data submitted and promptly begin processing. We also receive and submit messages from the US Department of Education’s Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) throughout the day for your institution’s financial aid processing needs and make them immediately available to you securely and accurately.

Verification

After collecting appropriate data and documentation, our team will perform a needs analysis and determine if any corrections must be made to the ISIR, submit any such corrections and determine eligibility for Federal Student Aid including Pell Grant, Federal Direct Loan, SMART Grant, and Campus-Based Aid (FSEOG, FWS, Perkins Loan) programs. Our processing services also address any issues or conflicts that arise during the eligibility review process including all verification and comment codes.

Scheduling of Aid

We schedule aid, order funds, process refunded or returned student funds, return excess funds, and report all disbursement information to maintain accurate records. All disbursement activities are completed in a timely manner to improve cash flow and enhance the student experience.

Compliance

At each stage of processing, the Weber & Associates team works to ensure that your institution meets all regulatory requirements to prevent compliance issues. We perform required record keeping, account reconciliations, and other tasks to decrease the risk of potential liabilities.
