Lindenwood Student Government held their General Assembly Meeting on Feb. 5 at 4 p.m. in Harmon Hall 117 with Vice President Emelyn Smuskevich calling the meeting to order in President Clayton Herbst’s absence.

Dr. Heather Shalley from Student Financial Services was a guest speaker at the meeting. According to Shalley, the government changed the dates of FAFSA submission which is resulting in Lindenwood not receiving the information for federal aid until March. Students who use federal aid will not be able to apply that to their tuition balance until March.

Shalley asked students who qualify and use federal aid to still complete the FAFSA and Student Financial Services will grant federal aid when they receive the necessary information.

Following the speaker, the Lindenwood Student Government executive board members delivered their reports.
