Let me take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. You will notice that there are a number of changes that are designed to make your visit simple.  We are constantly working to make this site a comprehensive resource where students and parents can receive information regarding SUBR's financial aid opportunities, eligibility requirements, and required processes.  We are dedicated to operating in accordance with state, federal, and university guidelines, as well as those set forth in our Code of Conduct.

The Financial Aid staff is dedicated to helping students in pursuit of their educational goals by providing financial information and services in a professional and individualized manner.  We are enthusiastic about working with you to complete your financial aid application so that your eligibility can be determined and awards can be offered in a timely manner.
