“Telefinancialaid Assistance” is defined as a method to deliver EOC financial aid (FAFSA) assistance and other services using live chat, telephone sessions or video conferencing to facilitate EOC services while the student and the EOC Staff are at two different locations.
I understand that I have the following rights and must meet the following requirements with respect to Telefinancialaid Assistance:
1. I have the right to withhold or withdraw consent at any time. If consent is withheld or withdrawn I can request referral to my colleges/university financial aid office.

3. I understand the following and limitations of telefinancialaid assistance:
Telefinancialaid assistance may have disruptions or delays in the service and quality of the technology used.
In rare cases, security protocols could fail, and your confidential information could be accessed by unauthorized persons.
