About the Financial Aid Office
The Financial Aid office is currently sending correspondence to students via email. Please check your email account regularly. A college education is a major investment. However, it is an investment of time, dedication and money that will seem small when you calculate the “profits” such an education makes possible. The Financial Aid office exists to serve students by helping to reduce the financial barriers to educational goals.
We accomplish this through:
- Identifying and coordinating available financial resources;
- Collecting, organizing, and processing financial data;
- Educating students about our financial aid process; and
- Providing additional online resources regarding financial aid and related subjects.
