James Green: Director of Financial Assistance

HSSU Home Page
The Harris-Stowe State University Office of Financial Assistance makes every effort to help each student receive the maximum amount of financial aid possible. Harris-Stowe is proud that around 90 percent of its students receive financial aid. This office helps to administer various awards and scholarships from sources such as the Board of Regents, gifts from alumni, faculty, community organizations and other friends of the university.
Our Mission
The mission of the Office of Financial Assistance is to assist in providing access to all financial information and services/resources that are available to eligible prospective and current students that may assist in making attending the University affordable. The Office, to the fullest extent possible, strives to provide high quality service, exercise good stewardship over funds, and maintain an environment that respects the confidentiality of the information it receives.
News and Information
School Code

When completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and applying for loans, students will need the school code. The code for Harris-Stowe State University is 002466

Time Limitation on Loan Eligibility

A federal regulation affecting new borrowers went into effect on July 1, 2013 that limits the time period during which you can receive Direct Subsidized loans to 150 percent of the standard length of the program in which you are enrolled. For a four-year baccalaureate degree program, the maximum period a new borrower can receive subsidized loans is six years. 

If you borrowed student loans prior to July, 1, 2013, you are exempt from this limitation on subsidized loans.

Are you registering for summer school?

If funds are needed for summer school, students must first register for their summer classes during the appropriate dates as listed in the 2015 Summer Course Schedule.


Results of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must also be on file for the prior year. The Financial Assistance Office will not assume summer school attendance just because it was indicated as intended enrollment on the FAFSA.


Pell Grant eligibility is determined by whether or not the full entitlement was already applied to the 9-month academic year, but this program is figured on a student-by-student basis.


Federal Direct Stafford Loans are frequently requested for summer school use; however, students are highly encouraged to make themselves aware of the aggregate (annual comprehensive) loan limits as you work towards the successful completion of your degree. These amounts can be found here.


Please remember to review the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy—all aid awarded prior to the end of the semester is considered “tentative” and is subject to change once final grades for the spring semester  have been reviewed.


Once you have registered for classes online, you will receive Hornet Mail (an email sent to your HSSU email account) within 5-10 business days letting you know of your financial aid standing.
