Financial Aid FAQ (Fall 2020)

Following the University's announcement of its plan for fall 2020, the Financial Aid Office has prepared a resource that answers common questions about the financial aid, billing, and student employment implications of the plan. Please view this resource to learn more.

Financial Aid Mail Processing

The Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid and Student Employment (UFA) is currently unable to send or receive U.S. mail. To update your financial aid application, please upload materials to your secure financial aid portal; secure fax to our office at 609-258-0336; or email to pfaa@princeton.edu (if you are a member of the class of 2024) or faoffice@princeton.edu (if you are a currently enrolled student).

Conflict Resolution/Termination

Conflict Resolution

Our office hopes that any minor disagreements between student employees and their employers can be worked out within the department.  However, the following steps should be followed if this is not possible.

Students should first bring employment problems to the attention of their immediate supervisor in order to seek a mutually satisfactory solution.  When problems cannot be resolved this way, students should discuss their concerns with the heads of the employing departments.  If this also fails, students should then contact the Student Employment Office.  Depending on the nature of the problem, our office may refer a student to other University resources for counsel and resolution.

 

Termination

Once students have been selected for a job, their continued employment depends upon their satisfactory performance of the required duties.  If a student’s employer decides that his or her performance is not satisfactory, then he or she may be released.   The student’s eligibility for future employment on campus will depend on the reason for dismissal.

If a student decides to terminate his or her employment, at least two weeks’ notice should be given to the employer.  In addition, the student should discuss the reason for termination with the employer and, if he or she wishes, with the Student Employment Office.
