The Write Away!
- The Writes to Success!
My advice to you? Get familiar with these places right away!
The Financial Aid Office ✅
“How do I understand _____ on my FAFSA form?!”
“Where can I find my tuition bill?!”
“When will I receive my refund?!”
The Financial Aid Office is located in the Bonnell building on 17th street and is available for all questions necessary from students concerning financial needs and loan information! If there is a particular form needed for loans, dependents, independents, appeals and other miscellaneous F.A. needs, they are all available here!
The Bursar Office ✅
Don’t let your bill go unpaid! Don’t lose your spot in your classes!
The Bursar Office is located in the Bonnell building on 17th street, directly across from the F.A. center and is available for all payments made to the school for classes.
Academic Advising ✅
Not sure what classes to take? Not sure if a class is going to satisfy a void or need on your journey to completing your major’s needs?
Academic Advising is located in the Bonnell in room BG-12, here to assist any student in need of help with class scheduling.
Single Stop ✅
Education asspirations are always a lot harder to reach when personal needs are lingering in every corner…take some lingering away and make a Single Stop to the Mint building in room M1-21 for personal financial concerns such as food, healthcare, or employment (to name a few).
Student Life Building ✅
Get involved! Join a club! Organize your rights in an organization, because college is all about involvement and fun too! The Student life building, better known as the Winnet is home of several clubs and organizations for students wanting satisfaction beyond their academics.
The Write help!
I’m writing to you, because we all need the right help on the road to success.
