The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships supports the university’s goal of ensuring that highly-promising students from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences are able to attend the university. The mission of our office is to provide students and their families with all available financial resources to ensure access to their academic goals. The office provides comprehensive financial information that makes going to the university possible. The Office aims to remove financial barriers and devise strategies that allow students to focus on academic success and take full advantage of the university experience. Process improvements are continually developed to make obtaining federal, state, institutional and outside agency financial aid assistance easier.
