Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008
The Student Consumer Information regulations require universities to provide consumer information to students, families, faculty and staff. The links below will provide you with detailed information regarding each topic.
The Financial Aid Office at the University of Guam strives to adhere to and maintain the highest levels of ethical and moral integrity in the administration of the various financial aid programs available to our students. As a result, we subscribe to the principles set forth in the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) Statement of Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct for Institutional Financial Aid Professionals.
The Financial Aid Office would like to remind students and families that financial aid consumer information is available for free in multiple formats. Financial aid information is available from the US Department of Education online or by phone at 1-800-4FED-AID. The UOG Financial Aid Office does not recommend that anyone pay for financial aid or scholarship advice without thoroughly researching a company. Tips about financial aid scams and evaluating a consultant can be found at www.finaid.org. At UOG the only paperwork that you must complete to apply for all types of federal and state financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Should you receive requests for information from agencies other than the UOG Financial Aid Office, please feel free to contact us to see if the information is necessary for your UOG financial aid file. Always question any financial aid information that requires a “processing fee” of any sort.
