Students from lower-income families need financial assistance to continue their studies. And when students determine that financial aid is the way to go, they have no clear idea about the application process.
Despite your best intentions, the process of applying for financial aid is a great challenge that your students have to grapple with; the experience from filling in details to submission is overwhelming.
It's because the manual student aid application (SAR) is difficult and time-consuming, resulting in more extended wait periods for student loan approval. It directly affects student experience and delays the enrollment process in your institution.
It is time to rethink and redesign the financial aid support system in your institution. One of the significant changes you should introduce is automating your financial aid application process with a modern tool like Clustdoc.
Clustdoc is the ideal choice if you're searching for a complex and detailed tool to help you standardize, simplify, and automate the student loan application process.
Clustdoc assists you in creating an automated financial aid application process that your student can follow.
With Clustdoc, you can collect all the necessary personal and financial information in one place. You can also effortlessly request documents like social security cards, student cards, bank statements, and family tax details.
Collecting information and sharing them is an effortless task at hand when done with Clustdoc.
