Community College District Wins Efficiency Award for Partnership with Global Financial Aid Services

The Dallas County Community College District has been selected by University Business Magazine as a Model of Efficiency Award honoree for improvements to its Financial Aid Verification process implemented with service and technology provided by Global Financial Aid Services.

Gulfport, MS, January 08, 2013 --( For several years leaders at the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) have worked hard to improve service for nearly 90,000 students. In 2010 an internal review revealed a need for process improvement in Financial Aid. In 2011 DCCCD partnered with Global for a solution that streamlined document collection and manual review which, previously, caused delays of up to 8 weeks in the Financial Aid awarding process. Almost immediately file review turnaround during peak season dropped from 6-8 weeks to less than five days. Now 18 months since implementation, DCCCD is receiving recognition in higher education for its achievements.

“We are very excited one of our partners has been recognized for their improvements to student service,” says Chesa Stanfield, Executive Director of Solutions at Global, “Our GlobalCORE paperless document collection and file review solution helped DCCCD facilitate a better student experience through shorter turnaround times from the Financial Aid application to award process.”
