Important Financial Aid Notice:
Federal Title IV student financial aid funding and PHEAA State Grants are temporarily on hold at this time while the U.S. Department of Education and PHEAA conduct their routine reviews as a result of an ownership change that occurred on 11/16/18. We anticipate these funding sources will be reinstated prior to the end of the 2018-19 academic year. We are making every effort to expedite this process to prevent or minimize any impact to students. We appreciate your patience and understanding. For more information, please contact Mr. James Ahacic, Interim Director, at 814-534-9480 or email@example.com.
