Summer II Student Services - Student Financial Services: We have increased our essential employees from 5 to 11 and will continue to bring additional staff back to the office. Our blended approach will have some staff back in the office on a staggered work schedule and some staff members continuing to work remotely. The office is not open to visitors due to the tight office layout not meeting social distancing requirements and the lack of plexi-glass protective barriers necessary to meet with the public.
