General Description / Primary Purpose
The One-Stop Coordinator, under the direction of an Assistant Director or above, assists in the design, development and implementation of departmental processes and/or programs. Recommends policies and procedures to ensure effective coordination of departmental programs.
Provide cross-functional services in the areas of Admissions, Records and Registration, and Financial Aid to prospective students, current students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and the University community. Provide proactive and on-the-spot, independent diagnostic support and problem resolution in a broad range of areas and issues related to Enrollment Services functions. Offer assistance to the public in-person, virtually, over the phone, and through e-mail or other written correspondence. Adhere to the confidentiality rules and restrictions set forth by FERPA for use in handling all Enrollment Services activities.
Maintain knowledge of University, departmental, federal, and state regulation and policies with emphasis on Enrollment Services functions. Research and interpret University policy and regulatory guidelines to resolve complex inquiries related to Enrollment Services functions. Exercise authority to implement student record changes and grant discretionary exception to certain university policies.
Evaluate student needs and determine possible courses of action using a wholistic approach that considers each student's academic standing, financial picture, and pace to graduate. Collaborates with team members and University partners to provide individualized service that considers each student's unique circumstances.
Advise students and parents on in-depth financial aid matters concerning FAFSA applications, financial aid eligibility and disbursement of aid, as well as cost of attendance figures, difference and benefits of different aid types and estimated family contribution formulas. Troubleshoot FAFSA errors and missing financial aid requirements with students and families, providing steps to resolve issues preventing financial aid awarding or disbursement.
Assists University/Board of Trustees/Board of Governors administrators and intra-institutional groups in resolving specific admissions and/or registration problems and in disseminating information in regard to SUS/university rules, policies, and contracts.
One-Stop Staff spend approximately 70% of their time doing diagnostic support and problem resolution in one-on-one interactions with students or families. While they are responsible for knowing federal, state, and university guidelines, it is the One-Stop Coordinators critical challenge to review each individual circumstance and interpret for the student what impact their options have on their academic and financial trajectory. One-Stop Coordinators then advise on which options are in the best interest of the student. This financial advising is critical for maintaining certain University performance metrics like student retention and student debt ratios.
As an example, One-Stop Coordinators use independent judgement when students visit One-Stop to discuss potential dropping of, or withdrawal from, courses. Students need to first understand how these course changes may alter their present and future financial aid eligibility. Though guidelines exist, a student's EFC (from FAFSA) and unique award offer can drastically change which options are possible or are in the best interest of the student. One- Stop Coordinators evaluate each student's situation based on the student's unique financial circumstances, classification (year-in-college), offered aid (with varying requirements), enrollment status, FAFSA results, progress towards graduation, residency status, previous financial aid history, and academic performance. One-Stop Coordinators conduct this evaluation independently to provide students with the best options for their situation while providing the expected outcomes of each option. These options can mean the difference between a student receiving their financial aid, losing renewal eligibility in future terms, or taking on additional loan debt.
