The Office of Financial Aid's reception and advising area will be closed April 21st through August 1st and relocated to the Brody Neighborhood Engagement Center due to renovations.  The front reception area will be closed during construction and many advisors will be relocated during this time.

Our phones, e-mail, and social media will continue to be available during our regular business hours of 8:00am to 4:55pm Monday through Thursday and 9:00am to 4:55pm on Fridays.

We are looking forward to a new advising area that will provide more privacy for students and families coming in to discuss their educational financing options. Thank you for your patience as we improve this space.
