What does the "Financial Aid Display Status" field on an Enrollment record control?

If a Financial Aid section exists on the Enrollment Portal home screen, this field controls certain aspects of how that section displays during the enrollment process.

This drop-down has 4 options:

  • Disabled causes the Financial Aid section to not display for this person at all
  • Capture Intention causes the section to appear with the Update Financial Aid Intentions button, allowing parents to update their financial aid request.
  • Display FA Status shows this section with only the status displaying.
  • Display FA Award Letter shows this section with the status, as well as a button to view the financial aid award letter.

This field allows you to control how this section displays on a person-by-person basis. This field can also be included in a query, allowing it to be updated in batch.
