The mission of the Financial Aid Office is to provide financial resources to all qualified applicants who would like to obtain a postsecondary education. In doing so, Financial Aid supports the mission of the University in its commitment to excellence in teaching, advancement of knowledge, and enrichment of the community, in that many students would not have access to higher education without adequate financial support. We also support the mission of the Student Affairs Division by providing students with the wherewithal to achieve academic and professional growth by providing the financial resources that contribute to student success.
