Workshops

We encourage students to attend our workshops to learn about registration, financial aid, and more. Workshops are available to all current students and are hosted by counselors in Enrollment Services.

To best ensure the safety of the campus community, we are currently offering virtual workshops via Zoom.

Financial Aid - Satisfactory Academic Progress

The U.S. Department of Education requires that students maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to be eligible for federal, state, or institutional financial aid. SAP is evaluated at the end of every semester after final grades have been posted. These events will help you understand the SAP standards and, if needed, how to submit an SAP appeal.

FERPA Training for Student Assistants

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of students and their educational records. Student assistants who request access to student educational records must complete FERPA training.
