I am an admitted student for Fall 2021. We received our financial aid offer (the College Financing Plan or CFP), but we have questions about what is listed.
If you have a quick question, feel free to give us a call at 610-330-5055. If you leave a voicemail, please let us know whom to call back and your student’s name and ID.
If your question is more involved and needs more in-depth conversation, please use the link below to schedule an appointment with one of our directors.
Please provide the following information when scheduling an appointment:
- Student’s full name
- Student’s Lafayette or Reference ID (provided by the Office of Admission)
- Best way to reach you (phone number and email), including dates and times
- A summary of your question or concern
Is there guidance for the financial effects on our family due to the current economic and COVID-19 pressures we are experiencing?
If your family has experienced a reduction in income since 2019 (the base year used on the FAFSA and CSS Profile) due to extenuating circumstances, you have the option to appeal. Please contact the Office of Financial aid at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-330-5055 to discuss the appeal process. Appeals cannot be considered without the requested supporting documentation.
Since the financial aid staff are working remotely, how should we connect with one of the directors?
Though our financial aid professionals are all working from home, we have implemented ways to work as if we were in the office. All emails and phone calls are being handled as if we were physically in the office, and one of us is retrieving mail and faxes from the College and forwarding those documents to the correct people for review.
Even with these practices in place, some of us have children at home who need our help with school assignments and have older family members with whom we need to connect. So, please be patient as we balance all of these converging responsibilities.
I am a currently enrolled (returning) student. When can I expect to receive my 2021-22 financial aid offer?
We anticipate releasing returning students’ financial aid offers by the end of June.
