Lynsey Shipman has worked in financial aid for twenty-three years, beginning in 1997 with a 3rd party financial aid processing servicer. She gained experience working on federal verification, cash management, R2T4 and Cost of Attendance budgets.
Lynsey then applied that experience at for-profit, clock hour schools, as a servicer while overseeing the daily running of three departments including award processing, R2T4 and budgets. She worked her way up to a management position by learning all aspects of processing including policies & procedures, changes for standard term, non-standard term (including modules), quarter credit and semester credit, non-term schools.
Working with over one hundred and seventy for-profit schools across the U.S., Lynsey then went to work for WSU Tech in Wichita, Kansas where she gained knowledge on working directly with students and their families. Her duties included coordinating SAP appeals, verification, file processing, attendance review, other daily processing duties and meeting with students. Overall, she has worked with schools that have just ten students to over three thousand students in most aspects of financial aid. She specializes in working in all Department of Education software including Ed Express and has worked with CampusVue (also now known as Nexus) and Banner.
