Financial Aid

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable you to successfully complete a university education regardless of your financial background.

Our Financial Aid Team strives to keep students informed of current government regulations, to foster open communication between staff and students and maintain positive customer service.

We participate in a variety of aid programs to assist qualified students.

These funds – from private, institutional, state and federal sources – are coordinated to meet your individual financial need, performance ability and academic excellence.

Financial Aid Disbursement

Enrollment in late start courses may cause a delay in the disbursement of federal and state financial aid.

The Financial Aid Office must confirm attendance in late start courses prior to payment for those courses.

Enrollment in late start courses could also affect a student's enrollment status which has the potential to affect the disbursement of financial aid funds throughout the semester.

Aid that has disbursed will not be adjusted to allow for a late start class.
