Service during the Holiday Season

While the university is introducing new precautions to promote safety and health, the Office of Financial Aid, Student Financial Services, and the Registrar’s Office remain committed to serving you in convenient, efficient, and safety-conscious ways.

Did you know you can conduct most of your business online and on-demand?
