Welcome to Student Financial Services

Student Financial Services seek to remove financial barriers to college enrollment and learner retention. We give students and parents the information they need to make sound decisions about attending and paying for college. The Financial Services office seeks to assure that any qualified student who desires to pursue and complete higher education has access to the appropriate financial resources to pursue their academic goals.
