We understand that some of these items can be confusing, and we want to offer you as much information to help answer your questions as possible. You will also have the opportunity to schedule an individual appointment with one of our financial aid counselors before arriving on campus by emailing our financial aid office. They will go over your specific financial aid offer and billing statement.
