Systems Operations

The FAO at Centenary College is automated/manual in processing.

Loading Financial Aid Data

Federal eligibility information is received electronically from the Department of Education using Electronic Data Exchange (EDE).

  • Processing Federal Data- Students may file their FAFSA either by paper application or on-line. FAFSAs may be electronically filed by the FAO on rare occasions.
  • Correcting Federal Data- Student FAFSAs will be corrected via EDE during the verification process only if there is a change in Pell eligibility.

Automatic Budgets

Budgets are assigned to students based on the information provided to the Admissions Office or based on information provided on the FAFSA.

Automatic Tracking

The FAO uses an automatic tracking program to monitor information and documents required from students.


All packaging is done manually.
