The Financial Aid Student Tracking (FAST) is a way for college/university financial aid contacts and the College Success Foundation (CSF) to share information pertaining to CSF Scholars.
Colleges/universities download Excel spreadsheets to obtain up-to-date financial aid data for CSF Scholars enrolled at their schools. This information can be downloaded in batches by category or by individual scholars. FAST users upload financial aid packages for scholars to CSF, as well as notes regarding scholars (e.g. graduated, not enrolled, student is on academic review, etc.)
If any students are receiving more than one CSF scholarship, they will be on the Awards Need Action spreadsheet and financial aid contacts will need to send CSF all award information before CSF can finalize award decisions and disburse funds.
