Shoreline Community College is adjusting responsibilities in the enrollment services and financial aid areas to better serve students.
“As Director of Financial Aid, Ted Haase will focus his considerable experience on that critical service to students,” said Daryl Campbell, Vice President for Administrative Services. Haase will continue to report directly to Campbell. “As diminishing state support continues to shift the financial burden to students, being able to make sure our students have clear access to financial assistance becomes all the more important.”
Chris Melton will continue to oversee the Enrollment Services area as the college’s Registrar.
“The experience Chris has in all aspects of enrollment services will serve students well, especially as the college moves toward offering these services in the online environment,” Campbell said.
Melton will report to Stuart Trippel, who reports to Campbell, at least through an assessment and review period between now and Sept. 30.
Over the past several years, the college moved toward a “one-stop” service philosophy that allowed students to get all many of their basic their needs met by just one person, rather than bouncing from office to office. Campbell said the one-stop approach will continue.
The separate reporting structure for enrollment services and financial aid won’t impact the integrated service approach that allows students to get many of their basic needs met by front-line staff in either area. Staff members have been cross-trained on many tasks, and that cross-training will still be put to use to efficiently serve students.
