An Introduction to Student Financial Services

A LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR
Dear Parents and Students:
At Student Financial Services, we understand how complex the world of need-based financial aid and student
accounts may appear, especially if this year marks the first year you have attended college or have a student in
college. Parents, much may have changed since you went to school!
To help you understand both of these topics better, anticipate and answer many of your likely questions, and
understand better the management of individual finances, we have produced this publication for you to read, print,
and retain for your reference.
Please note especially the forms that are included in this document, as the timely completion and submission of them
will greatly help in some key aspects of the student experience here at the University.
We wish you the very best for the coming year.
Student Financial Services
