Financial Aid Appointments

If you or your family is experiencing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic please email or call the Office of Financial Aid so we can discussion your situation and the possibility of a re-evaluation of your financial aid award.

The Office of Financial Aid is now scheduling appointments for students who need to conduct business in person.  Appointments can be made through email at or through our chat located on our website. In person appointments are available Monday through Thursday from 8am to 5pm. However, we are confident that most questions can be handled without in-person visits via a phone call, a webex meeting or email.

Please be aware at this time the Office of Financial Aid is no longer accepting documents in person or via fax. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please send in requested documents via US Mail or use Mapping Xpress.  Please see the instructions below.
