We provide financial planning for our students through our
Student Financial Services Department. Once you complete
the Financial Aid application forms, a Financial Aid Officer
(FAO) assigned to you will review the forms and use a federally-approved
calculation to determine your eligibility.
The FAO will then work with you and your family to devise
a Student Financial Plan to help you pay for your educational
expenses, based on your financial aid eligibility and your
family's circumstances. You will have an individual payment
plan allowing you to budget your payments - we want to make
your education as affordable as possible.
