Privacy Notice: Though our staff is happy to answer any general questions you may have regarding your student’s financial aid, we strongly encourage students to be their own advocate. Please know that we are limited by federal privacy restrictions (FERPA) regarding the disclosure of your student’s information without their consent. If it becomes necessary for you to speak with our office about specific details of your student’s financial aid, your student will need to grant legal consent via their financial aid student portal or by completing a privacy release form.
