Dear Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff:
As financial aid administrators, we learn and follow a series of complex federal and state regulations and ensure that our actions follow law and model strong ethical standards with guidance of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) and the University System of Maryland. Bowie State University financial aid staff has adopted a code of conduct in which our mission will be to continually work creatively and diligently to attain optimal service, provide up-to-date financial aid assistance and support the academic mission of the university, with our ultimate goal of enhancing student success. This requires us to uphold the Universities’ core values. We pledge to respect others regardless of circumstances as we uphold BSU values.
In ensuring integrity of our financial aid programs, our ethics within our office and profession are discussed regularly. The Financial Aid staff is well versed on the ethical practices of the profession and strives to steer students to maximize federal and state aid eligibility, by encouraging all students to apply for aid.
The process of applying for aid can seem complicated and time consuming, and we want to make it a pleasant experience for you. We look forward to helping you meet your educational goals and wish you success.
Director of Financial Aid
