This role requires a high level of professionalism, tact, and autonomous sound and creative decision making to meet the program deliverables.
Consulting with the Director of the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, the Housing Stability Coordinator will maintain a thorough working knowledge of all aid programs available at SDSU and the processes on how aid is awarded each academic year, in order to provide a thorough analysis of a student's financial situation and recommend a plan of action to the student to possibly resolve their financial crisis.
