We hope that all of you had a wonderful Independence Day. Unfortunately, there has been a major leak in the Ellington building.  It is projected that the repairs will take approximately three months to complete.  The center of the building will be partitioned off with no access during this time.  This impacts the Financial Aid and the Registrar’s office directly. The only way to access their office would be the stairs at the end of the building.  If you have a mobility issue and need to gain access to either office, please call The Office of Disability Services for an alternate meeting location.  We understand that this is not an ideal situation but we are making the best of it for this short time period.  We appreciate your understanding.

 As always, The Office of Disability Services looks forward to assisting you in meeting all of your educational goals.
