Schedule an Appointment

Sign up for a 30 minute appointment with a financial aid advisor.  Virtual appointment details (via Microsoft Teams) are provided in an email upon appointment confirmation.  If you prefer to meet in person or via telephone, you can elect to do so.  You do not need a Teams account to participate in the virtual appointment.  Need to cancel or reschedule?  Your confirmation email will provide a button to do so, or you can contact our office.  Students must be present for the appointment, and we are not able to speak directly to parents alone.   Financial Aid appointments are intended for currently enrolled or admitted students only.

UIS email is preferred; however, you may use other email addresses.  Please note Gmail email addresses will not currently receive the confirmation email message.
