Student Service Coordinators at UMA Centers

Student Services Coordinators (SSC) at the UMA Centers are happy to answer questions about financial aid, admission to a degree program, course schedules, and more. An SSC can help you select courses, locate resources and ensure you’re on track to graduate. You can direct most university-related questions to your local SSC; if they do not have the answer, they will point you to the available resource that does.
