Associate Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, College of Law - 200000018U


The Associate Director of Admissions and Financial Aid (ADAFA), with the supervision of the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid (DAFA), oversees the financial aid and scholarships unit of the department and the post-admission processes and strategies for the College of Law Admissions Office. This unit is responsible for all of the College's scholarship offerings and for projecting scholarship availability each fiscal year. The ADAFA plays a critical role in assuring that the College meets its goal of admitting the most highly qualified and diverse class possible. This is accomplished through the monitoring of scholarship awards and financial aid decisions. To this end, the ADAFA ensures that scholarship awards are appropriately made consistent with the applicable criteria and that FERPA guidelines are met. The ADAFA regularly counsels prospective, admitted, and current students on financial and application matters. The ADAFA also directs, at the approval of the DAFA, the work of one non-exempt employee and one exempt employee with regard to financial aid policies and procedures.


The ADAFA must have strong skills in Microsoft Office. Excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to relate effectively with many constituents on a daily basis are imperative. A strong aptitude to communicate well both verbally and in writing, and the ability to maintain confidentiality is required. The ability to focus on the most minute details is necessary. Analytical skills to prepare statistical reports and analyze a variety of data and processing systems are critical.


Candidates are required to have a Bachelor’s Degree, as well as 3-5 years of student services experience, but 5-7 years of law school (or other graduate level) admissions and/or financial aid experience will be preferred, along with the ability to use multiple computing systems, including ACES2.


To receive full consideration, please include a cover letter and resume with application submission.
