Update Regarding COVID-19

The Office of Financial Aid is working hard to serve our students and community remotely during the COVID-19 crisis.

We will be monitoring phone and email on a daily basis. We value your inquiries and will work to respond to messages within 24-business hours.

Students may contact their Financial Aid Counselor via phone or email. If you are unsure who to contact, you may send an email to finaid@sxu.edu to be transferred to the next available counselor.

Students are advised to check their SXU email and Financial Aid Gateway frequently for changes to their aid.

If students need to submit missing required documents, we ask that they submit all required documents via email as opposed to in-person or by mail. Please use caution when emailing documents with sensitive information.

We wish you and your family well during this time of uncertainty and look forward to working with you.
