Consumer and Safety Information

Federal regulations require that institutions provide enrolled and prospective students specific consumer information about financial aid, campus, facilities, student athletes, important resources and disclosures, as well as information to promote campus security and fire safety, and to prevent drug and alcohol abuse.  Because of the nature of federal, state and institution guidelines affecting financial aid programs, the information contained in this website is subject to change.
