The Financial Aid Office extends a hearty welcome to the Class of 2021! Our office is responsible for the administration of scholarships, loans and work-study employment. We offer individual loan counseling and financial literacy workshops to interested students and provide guidance on the financial implications involved with taking a leave of absence or studying abroad. Our office is located on the 2nd floor of North College. Please feel free to drop by at anytime! Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30am – 5pm. You can also reach us by phone at (860) 685-2800 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help you navigate the financial aid process and gain a better understanding of how financial aid at Wesleyan works, please join us for one of our Financial Aid Information sessions being held during orientation. The sessions will be offered on Thursday, 8/31 at 3pm and 3:30pm in the Woodhead Lounge (next to the Exley Science Center). Come meet Michelle Jarvis, the Class of 2021 financial aid director! Michelle will be working with many of you throughout your years at Wesleyan.
In addition to the information sessions, the Money Matters workshop will be held in Exley 150 on Thursday, 8/31 at 2pm and on Friday, 9/1 at 10am. The Money Matters program will provide you with valuable information regarding the process for securing a job and getting paid! The session will also provide an overview of your student account statement, noting important billing deadlines. A review of the charging privileges offered through your student account will also be included. Open to all students, the Money Matters session is required of all financial aid recipients.
Should you have any questions concerning your financial aid or experience financial challenges throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you over the next four years!
