Beginning on Monday, October 11, 2010 the service hours for the Office of Student Financial Services will be 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  Thursday hours will be 10:45 am to 4:30 pm.

The change from our traditional closing time of 5:00 pm will improve student service by allowing staff time at the end of the day to make necessary contact with students and their families who need assistance with financial matters.  This change also will align our service area hours with those of our neighbor, the Registrar's Office, providing a uniform end time for all transactions in this area.

We look forward to assisting the Campus Community with improved efficiency!

Entries are due at 2:00pm on Wednesday!  Be a part of the intramural sensation!

In many instances the plan is likely to make explicit expectations of publications that are implicit now, but in any case a “Plan” section must be part of the proposal package.
