Fast, dependable application processing

With FINANCIER™, loading ISIRs and PROFILE data is truly simple — in just two steps you have all the pertinent biographic/demographic, academic and financial data ready at hand. For each application it loads, FINANCIER calculates the student’s budget, performs a need analysis, evaluates the financial aid application status and retrieves current information from your student systems. Both load steps are online volume processes, initiated from a web page, that can be managed and run as easily from within the financial aid office as from an IT operations center.

FINANCIER’s convenient web pages assist you in monitoring the applications — verifying students, reviewing federal corrections, tracking requirements — with complementary volume processes automating the mass operations.

All processing is tailored specifically to your needs, with user-defined criteria to select students for volume processes, calculate budgets and assign application requirements.


Timely student communication

FINANCIER™provides the data for requirements notifications and award letters, and allows for delivery by letter, email or portal.

Portal design can include the ability to apply for institutional aid, to accept or decline awards online and to communicate with aid counselors.

As communications options expand, WolffPack is committed to helping you take advantage of whatever means serve you best.


Packaging tailored to your policies

WolffPack delivers the packaging calculations for standard federal grant and loan programs and implements packaging parameters that express your policies and procedures: student eligibility criteria for all funds, award amount calculations for institutional and campus-based aid, disbursement schedules and award distribution rules.

Packaging with FINANCIER™ then becomes an easy two-step volume or online process. FINANCIER calculates the awards, and then (subject to your approval) posts them. You can add or update individual awards online, and import state aid information in volume.

FINANCIER’s disbursement scheduling allows for multiple term structures and disbursement points to support all your academic programs.


Efficient, cost-effective platform

FINANCIER™ employs industry-leading technologies such as Oracle database tools — you can run any SQL-compliant reporting or query tool against its Oracle relational database. FINANCIER also takes advantage of readily available, open-source programming languages to give institutions maximum flexibility in their technical operations. The system’s business logic, for example, is written primarily in PHP, an open-source, cross-platform, server-side scripting language that allows for robust, secure, multi-threaded software application development.

Other advantages of FINANCIER™’s ultra-thin client design include:

  • Easy system access for staff at remote locations
  • Faster response time and reduced network traffic through the use of client-side JavaScript
  • Flexibility of background volume processing, with less dependence on technical staff
  • Reduced technical maintenance, with business rules loaded only to the application server
  • Ability to modify system web pages with the editing tool of your choice
  • Savings in training time and expense, as you leverage your existing word processing and spreadsheet software
  • Lower equipment costs
