Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office has joined the Registrar and Bursar Offices on the web to bring you one place to find answers to many of your enrollment and finance questions!

If you’ve got questions about financial aid, try looking through the various pages in the “Finances” section of our new website! If you’re not sure where to look, try Asking a Panther. If you’ve still got questions, please let us know below!

Talk with Us

We have dedicated staff monitoring our phone line, front desk, and e-mail inbox. If you’ve got a question, you can often get it answered quickly by calling, stopping in, or using the contact form above.

When we’re not hosting walk-in advising, an appointment is required to work with a financial aid advisor in person or over the phone. You can find the walk-in advising hours below.  If you believe you would best be served by meeting with an advisor in person or over the phone, you can follow this link to schedule yourself an appointment. If you’re unsure whether or not you need an appointment, please call our office and we can make that determination for you.

Walk-In Advising Hours

Have questions for an advisor? No need for an appointment on Wednesdays!

Upcoming Wednesdays walk-in advising WILL NOT be available:
