Simplify financial aid management and administration.

Streamline the administration of aid programs from federal, state, institutional, and private fund sources.

  • Automate financial aid processes such as cost of attendance, packaging, and verification.

  • Allow students and their parents to update and view information and take action throughout the financial aid cycle.

Flexibly package financial aid.

Workday Student Financial Aid accommodates the full spectrum of packaging methods, including need-based, merit, and graduate student support.

  • Process need-based aid using the student's ISIR and determine eligibility for financial support.
  • Use admissions profile and financial aid application data to quickly calculate merit aid or graduate support programs.
  • Optimize enrollment yield models using student recruiting and admissions engagements data.
