Rights of Financial Aid Recipients

Rights of Financial Aid Recipients

  • Confidentiality: The Privacy Act exists to protect students' rights to confidentiality and limits the College from releasing information about a student's file or award(s). Therefore, information released over the phone must be limited to general information. Students must submit a written request if they need information about their financial aid released to an outside agency or to another person. Please see Notification of Student's Rights under Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) in the online catalog for additional information.
  • Knowledge: Financial aid recipients have the right to know what the Student Financial Resources Office has done and what is expected of them. Students who have questions have the right to contact Financial Aid.
  • Fair and Equal Treatment: Financial aid awards at Seminole State are made without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age, sex, veteran status, disability, sexual orientation or marital status. Need is determined using a nationally recognized formula. Students who are concerned that they were not treated equally or fairly should discuss the situation with the Director of Student Financial Resources.
