Mission Statement

  • The Financial Aid Office is charged with the complex and detailed tasks of administering funds from a variety of sources, in a manner that will benefit the maximum number of students who are in need of financial assistance to meet their educational goals and objectives.

    The mission of the financial aid office is to meet the financial need of as many qualified financial aid applicants as possible by developing packaging strategies and policies that reflect the university's mission, goals, and objectives. These strategies attempt to meet the direct costs of the neediest students via scholarships, grants, loans, and employment within program guidelines and budgetary constraints.  The packaging philosophy of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Financial Aid Office, in most respects, mirrors that of the U.S. Department of Education.
