Prospective Students / Contact Us

The Office of Financial Assistance is located on the 3rd floor of Johnson Hall directly above the Admissions Office. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

During the Johnson Hall construction and renovation project, access to the Financial Assistance Office may be challenging. Please note the following navigational suggestions.  

  • The elevator is not currently operational.  If you need the elevator, please do not come to Johnson Hall.  Instead, call our office and we will make alternate arrangements.
  • If you are able to walk up the stairs, please use the west entrance (on the left side of the building, closest to Joyner Hall) and use the back stairs immediately on your right.  Once on the third floor, watch for signs on the left directing you into the back of our office.  Please walk to the front desk to check in.
  • Feel free to call or email us at any time to determine if we can help you without your needing to come to the office.

Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.
