Financial Aid Office - Important News! from Linda Gaston Linda A LeaheyShow MyInfo popup for Linda A Leahey 3/6/2019 2:00:00 PM


Greetings students,

The Enrollment Management Team wishes you a restful and relaxing Spring break.  

We would like to remind you to file your 2019/2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) over the break if you haven’t already done so.  Remember, the College priority deadline date is April 1st so if you’re hoping to get work-study it’s imperative that you meet that deadline date.  

In addition, we want to remind you that as a returning student to the College your financial aid for the upcoming fall/spring semesters will remain the same.  No changes are being made to returning students aid.   Your aid will change, however, if you decide to enroll for less than 12 credits, change your housing status, or take more online courses than in classroom courses.

So, if you haven’t filed your FAFSA, please do so and we’ll get your financial aid package to you as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 814-886-6357 or   Once again, enjoy your break!
