Contact and Staff Information

FAQ: May I inquire about my son/daughter/spouse's account?

In an effort to adhere to federal privacy laws, the Financial Aid Office restricts the release of certain private student information (regardless of age). Students must contact us personally to check the status of their financial aid application and awards. Often, we will be unable to release information to third parties (i.e., parents, spouses, etc.) without a signed release form on file from the student. To obtain a Disclosure of Records form, the student must visit the Admissions and Records Office in person and present a photo ID.
