February is "Financial Aid Awareness Month"
To kick off Financial Aid Awareness month, the Financial Aid Office is doing its part to help get the word out. For the first week in February we will be handing out flyers in the Bienvenue Student Center to remind students to file their FAFSA and also answering any questions they have about the process. Other outreach that the Financial Aid Office is conducting this month includes handing out flyers at various locations on campus and information sessions on Student Loan Repayment and Default Prevention.
