Dear Wolf Pack students,

We know the stresses of pursuing your degree continue whether you are on campus or remote. Please use these resources covered by your tuition and fees to help ensure your success.


If you have not completed a 2020-21 FAFSA or the Institutional Methodology Form (for non-FAFSA eligible students) to receive aid, it is not too late. Complete your applications immediately. Visit the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships in person or virtually by using QLess to get answers to all your financial aid questions.

There are several services through the Dean of Students Office to take advantage of including the Student Emergency Fund and the Tuition Fund.

Pack Provisions provides food and other supplies free of charge. We have legal services that can assist with landlord tenant issues.
