Welcome to the Parent's Section of the Financial Aid Office's web site. As the parent of a college student, you probably have numerous questions regarding financial aid and what resources are available to you to help pay your son or daughter's education. This section has been developed to assist our students' parents with basic information ranging from deadlines, required applications, and payment plans to PLUS loans, college costs, and tax benefits.
Although these pages will help you with general financial aid information, we realize that personal follow-up may be necessary in many situations. We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have; however, please note that in order for the Financial Aid Office's staff to release information or to discuss a student's financial aid with anyone, including parents or outside organizations, your son or daughter must complete a Release of Information form. By completing this form, all aspects of your son or daughter's financial aid, except for information pertaining to academic progress, may be released to or discussed with the individuals listed. Please note that this is a precautionary measure taken to protect your son or daughter's identity.
