There are many different types of financial aid (loans, grants, and scholarships). If you enroll in classes that are not needed toward your degree, financial aid will not cover the expense. Visit the financial aid web site for more information. In addition, our Foundation Office offers scholarships to assist you with your tuition.
After you have been a student for one semester, you can use OLSIS (Online Student Information System) to register for classes. In addition, OLSIS is a tool that students can use to add or drop classes, view your academic transcript, check on the status of your financial aid, etc. We recommend you meet with your advisor first to make sure you are taking classes that satisfy degree requirements.
