Financial Aid Mission Statement

The mission of Barton's Financial Aid Office is to assist in funding students' educational objectives while administering programs within federal, state, and institutional guidelines.

By counseling students and families about the programs offered and guiding them through the application process, it is our goal to make education at Barton affordable.

It is also our intention to provide our customers (both internally and externally) with top quality customer service, practical and useful advice, and objective guidance in their financial aid decisions.
