Your Financial Aid Staff

“In my many years working in the field of Financial Aid, I have been guided by the philosophy that the Financial Aid Office should counsel you and your parents to ensure that you maximize all your options for funding your education.”
Carol Masse, Executive Director of Financial Aid

With a combined total of more than 25 years of experience, my colleagues Kristina Alvarez, Semra Schneider, and I are here to help you complete the financial aid process, whether you are a first-time freshman or transfer student applying to MIAD or a continuing student. That means helping you apply for all the aid for which you may be eligible, ensuring that your FAFSA applications are correct and submitted on time, and making sure that financial aid awards are disbursed to your student account on time.

We believe in helping you achieve your dream of a MIAD education as strongly as you do.

Our office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feel free to contact us at 414.847.3234 or
