Serving you on Campus

We will resume regular office hours on August 10 from 8 to 4:30, Monday through Friday. We strongly encourage an appointment if you want an in-person meeting. We will be taking precautionary measures and will be limiting the number of people in our office at one time. This may cause a slight wait if you are not scheduled for an appointment. You must also provide your own mask to enter the office.

Thank you so much for understanding. We look forward to helping answer your questions as we move forward together.
