Financial Aid Counseling
The Office of Financial Aid offers financial aid counseling throughout the year. If you have questions or concerns about the financial aid process, connect with us so we can help. Our experienced counselors have specific knowledge about important deadlines you need to know about, key details for required forms and more.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we will have limited staffing available on campus beginning 1/18/2022 through 1/28/2022. This may cause longer than usual wait times for in-person counselor appointments. Therefore, we strongly encourage connecting with our office via phone or email to connect with a counselor for faster service. You can reach us at (562) 903-4742, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by completing our Contact Request Form.
Our financial aid counseling services are offered primarily through drop-in meetings at the times listed below. Be sure to bring any documentation you have questions about, as well as your student ID number and login information for any pertinent financial accounts you may need to reference. We aim to serve students promptly, but wait times for counseling can vary by season — with our busiest month being August. Avoid the rush by connecting with us as far as possible in advance of the start of the academic term.
