Newbury College Financial Aid Newsletter
The Appointment of Elreo Campbell to Dean of Admissions & Financial Aid
Since Reo's arrival to Newbury in the summer of 2011, he has made a significant impact in the delivery of our financial aid programs and in the lives of our students and their families. His tireless work has enabled the College to strengthen its federal, state, and institutional compliance requirements. In addition, he has collaborated on a number of initiatives that improved the workflow between Student Accounts and Financial Aid.

Reo has played a major role in working with the Admissions team in support of their recruitment efforts and helped design Newbury's merit- and need-based aid programs this past year. Reo has accomplished much during his tenure here at Newbury and we are confident that his contributions to our College Community will continue to grow.

On Tuesday, February 24, 2014 six of Newbury’s MassGrant recipients joined over 200 students from several Massachusetts colleges and universities in the state house with a mission to represent their respective schools to advocate for state funding for the Annual AICUM Financial Aid Day. AICUM or the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities is a Massachusetts non-profit leading the event annually; and it seems to really pay off. In fact, in the fiscal year 2014 budget legislatures increased state funding for college students by 3 million dollars during the 2013 fiscal year!

This year the financial aid team chose 6 high achieving Mass Grant recipients to represent Newbury College at the State House: Anne Abreu ‘17, Natisha Anderson ‘17 , Ashlenie Calcano ‘15, Harrison Grams ‘17, Dianivette Melendez ‘14, and Soneka Samuels ‘14. Clad proudly in Newbury sweatshirts the 6 students visited the offices of legislatures and their assistance affiliate with their hometowns to share their personal stories face to face to explain the impact of Mass State Grant and Gilbert Grant funding in helping them to pay for their college education. Not to mention, each one of our 6 students really impressed legislatures with a personal thank you card and a box of cookies prepared by our very own culinary majors!

What does this mean? And why did it happen to me? Many people ask this question when their FAFSA has been selected in a process called verification.

Verification is the process by which schools review student financial aid applications for accuracy. Most applicants selected for verification have a zero Expected Family Contribution (EFC) or are Pell eligible. If you were selected for verification, a missing information letter was sent to you indicating what information and documents are needed.

It is extremely important to submit all documents prior to the Verification deadline. The deadline has been extended until June 6, 2014.

The best way to verify income is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool that is part of FAFSA on the Web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you have questions about the verification process or need assistance, please contact the financial aid staff at 617-730-7100.

How did Newbury help you during your time here?

Newbury gave me many chances to discover a new world. I became an Admission Ambassador, I played college baseball, I met amazing professors who helped guide me towards my goals, and I built my confidence for the real world.
Any advice for incoming freshmen or even current students?

When I was a freshman, the best advice I received was 'Don't leave any stones unturned'. Embrace all opportunities - you might unveil a passion you didn't know you had.
