About the Office of Financial Aid

Mission Statement

The Office of Financial Aid is committed to the success of our students by providing
financial aid and advising services that support student recruitment, retention, and
timely degree completion. We keep student success central while providing the highest
level of service, and equal opportunity in awarding funds at Southeastern Louisiana
University, while complying with Federal, State, and University policies and regulations.
We increase opportunities for access and affordability by providing accurate financial
information, and individualized guidance and support for students and families in
an environment that embraces teamwork and collaborative partnership. We seek to deliver
a culture of care and to deliver resources that will allow all students the opportunity
for education through an ongoing commitment to our values: excellence and caring.
