  • understanding your LOCUS account
  • finding your financial aid award
  • scholarship search assistance
  • help with creating a budget
  • reviewing aid appeals essays
  • referrals and introductions to specific Financial Aid staff

Additionally, ACE pairs with the Financial Aid Office (FAO) to offer workshops on topics such as:‌     

  • establishing a strong credit history
  • managing debt
  • making and keeping a personal budget
