Financial Assistance

Our Financial Assistance advisors are here to help you understand your financial aid options and guide you through the application process. They evaluate your application and assist in budgeting and disbursing awards. They also act as liaisons with private grantors, government agencies, and lenders, presenting you with financial aid options, repayment plans, and expense planning.

Student Loans, Government Grants, Academic Scholarships

The typical Financial Assistance Advisor assists you with:

  • What aid is available, if you qualify, how it is distributed, and renewal requirements
  • Helping file applications accurately and verify your eligibility for aid
  • On a personal level by fostering financial literacy and debt management, and by mitigating unusual circumstances
  • Helping streamline and simplifying the aid application process
  • Student employment or Federal Work Study; on-campus jobs support academic departments, libraries, and other institutional operations
  • Ensuring compliance with voluminous and detailed federal, state, and local regulations
