DID YOU KNOW? 
Once you begin taking classes as a college student, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of your education record and prohibits our One-Stop Shop staff members from discussing your financial aid, student account, or academic information with anyone but you. If you wish for your parent, guardian, or another person to speak with us on your behalf, complete and submit an Authorization for Release of Information Form (ROI) to authorize us to speak with others about your protected information. 

The One-Stop Shops are closed on holidays observed by the university,
