Your first point of contact for departmental aid awarding questions and issues is your SIS Local Expert. "Local Experts" are located throughout the University schools and departments. As needed, they will forward your question or issue to ISDS/SIS or Student Financial Services (SFS). If the answer or resolution is of value to the rest of the users in your school or department, your local expert will disseminate the information.
If your Local Expert cannot assist you, contact the help desk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter "Departmental Aid Question" in the subject line of your email and cc: Sarah Doran (email@example.com), Amy Nolasco (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Denise Hubbard (email@example.com).
