Student Financial Services is a collaboration that includes the Office of Financial Aid Administration, the Office of Student Accounts, the Office of Student Scholarships, and the Student Financial Service Center (SFSC). The SFSC is the office that serves as students’ and parents’ go-to place for answers to questions about scholarships, financial aid, and billing.

Please confirm office hours before making a trip to Mellencamp Hall. If you need to submit a document that requires someone to witness your signature, you may wish to consider the Notary option.

Answers to many questions can be found on our website! If you’re not sure where to look, you can also Ask Pounce, our Chatbot. If you have questions specific to your account, check your PAWS Student Center first for items on your To-Do List and to review any aid offered to you. You can review our PAWS Tutorial if you need help accessing your account.

Questions about Spring 2024? Schedule an appointment or visit us during our Walk-In Hours!
For the remainder of the semester, visit us between 9 am and 3 pm on Wednesdays when classes are in session. You will be signed up to meet with an advisor on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students at the branch campus’ should use the contact information on this page. Solution Center staff may be able to answer general questions.

You can meet with an advisor:

By Video Chat: Appointments are available via custom Microsoft Teams meeting links. This helps share screens and see your advisor face-to-face. You can join this meeting through your web browser, so you do not need any additional software for this option. Review your confirmation e-mail for steps to joining a video appointment.

By Phone: This is a great virtual meeting option if you don’t have a webcam, or don’t need to share screens. An advisor will call you at the number you indicate, so be sure to provide the best number to reach you. Be prepared to answer a call from an unknown 414 number.

In-Person: While you are not yet able to schedule an in-person appointment in advance, drop in on our Walk-In Wednesday hours! Any Wednesday that classes are in session you can stop by the SFSC between 9 am and 3 pm to meet with an advisor on a first-come, first-served basis.
