The Office of Student Financial Services
Welcome to the homepage of the Office of Student Financial Services. We assist students and families in the financial aid process, including completing the FAFSA and WASFA applications, applying for federal and private alternative loans and understanding all the policies and procedures that can make the financial aid process a complicated and confusing process. We hope you will find the information on our website to be convenient and thorough in addressing your financial aid, student accounts, and billing questions. Click on the blue FAQ box to the right, or the “Contacting Us” tab above for answers to questions we are most frequently asked.
If you have questions regarding class registration, your academic records or anything regarding university academic policies, please contact the Registrar’s Office or the Center for Student Success. On-line access to many of these services, as well as your financial aid records are all available via your Banner Self-Service, 24/7.
