A coordinator will contact you shortly after you have submitted the application for services. When you have gathered your documentation an intake interview will be scheduled to discuss your request, and the process for providing information to your faculty. If you do not hear from a coordinator within 24 business hours, or you have other questions, please email Senior Director, Kelly Cogar. We look forward to working with you.
