Financial Aid Staff

These financial aid staff members assist undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with general inquiries, loan administration, work-study, and student employment, and are in charge of office systems and operations.

Student Services

Our Student Services unit is a frontline source for students and families who have general questions about the financial aid application process. Additionally, this unit coordinates the collection of all application documents (i.e., tax returns, W-2s, citizenship, entrance interview counseling, and others) needed for file completion.

Student Services staff are available by phone, Monday–Friday, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
