Financial Advising

It’s best to seek advice early so your problems don’t get out of control. Financial Advising can help relieve your stress and assist you with planning for your studies. Our Financial Advisors are trained to assist currently registered students with navigating the various funding practices at the university. They can also provide support with budgeting  and debt load management.
