What is PowerFAIDS / the Financial Aid System project?

We are replacing WashU’s aging, homegrown Student Assistance Record system, or STAR, with new solutions that will better support our ability to attract talented students through the use of strategic financial aid.  As part of the STAR replacement, we are implementing PowerFAIDS to manage financial aid administration for Danforth undergraduate, graduate and law students. PowerFAIDS will manage all aspects of the financial aid process, including applications, disbursements, award distribution and federal work study.
