Help Us Stay in Touch With You:

Accurate Address: In addition to email, financial aid correspondence is sent to either your local address (in school periods), or your permanent address (during the summer) as listed with University records. It is your responsibility to maintain an up-to-date address with the Records Office. You can update your address on SSC.  The Financial Aid Office cannot be responsible for delays that result from an incorrect address.

If your parent applied for a PLUS loan, the PLUS check proceeds will be mailed to the parent address provide on the application. IF that adddress changes, you will need to contact the Financial Aid Office and inform the office of the change in your parent address.
