VUU hosts ‘Taking Care of Business’ session
6/22/2016, 2:46 p.m.
Virginia Union University is working to prevent the kind of last-minute snafus that disrupted enrollment and housing for dozens of students at the start of classes last August.
In a proactive move, VUU President Claude G. Perkins announced that the school will host a special “Taking Care of Business” session on campus from 10 a.m.
to noon Saturday, June 18, for returning students at the Henderson Center.
Campus officials will be there to deal with payment accounts, financial aid and housing. The goal is to allow students to set up payment plans and file applications for scholarships and financial aid, clear- ing the way to apply for campus housing before the start of classes Aug. 11.
Dr. Perkins stated that VUU plans to follow this session with a “Panther Launch” for new and prospective students 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 25, at Ellison Hall. The program also will involve meetings with school officials to take care of financial and housing details.
