Are you a technophile who loves the values of the traditional academy, but want the modern technology campus? Living on campus, students are surrounded by a true living-learning technology environment that incubates their ideas into innovations that students can patent and take to market. Students must create an innovation project to graduate.


We are an entrepreneurial, results-oriented company recognized for delivering high standards of innovation and service.

  • Manage various student accounts to ensure timely and accurate communication

  • You have experience working in a high-volume financial aid department while being responsible for your own cohort of students
  • You’re smart, innovative, and see your ideas through to the finish line
  • You’re the definition of a team player. You're friendly and genuine.
  • You show excellent interpersonal and relationship building skills
  • You’re skilled, resourceful, and a fearless problem-solver
  • You’re a master of communication and collaboration internally and cross-departmentally
  • You maintain trustworthiness, confidentiality, and are discreet
  • You take ownership and go the extra mile to get the job done
  • You consistently execute deadlines while navigating through a fast-paced environment


Summary of Employment Benefits:

  • Two Medical insurance options with 100% of the team member premium paid for one.

  • Competitive Employee and Dependent Scholarship Programs; we take pride in your educational background and look forward to supporting your families’ academic goals and endeavors.
  • Meal Benefit at University Café. HANGRY? Never heard of here. Come get your lunch at the café, on us, YUM!
