The Student Financial Services (SFS) team is committed to supporting students in financing their education.

We are responsible for the billing and collection of tuition and fees. Additionally, we provide students with the support, tools, and information necessary to ensure they understand the aid they’re receiving – including third-party aid such as Vocational Rehabilitation.

Students can contact us with any questions they have regarding their account.
