New Financial Aid Advisor Coordinator at WIU-QC

My name is Gretchen Hampsey and I am the new Financial Aid Advisor Coordinator at WIU-QC. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to guide you through the financial aid process and to provide you with the resources and information you need to be successful.

I have over ten years of experience in higher education. Most recently, I served as Assistant Director of Financial Aid at Augustana College. Prior to joining Augustana, I spent six years at Rend Lake College in Ina, Illinois. I received my B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Washington in Seattle and moved to the Quad Cities in 2011.

Here are a few interesting facts about myself. I’ve lived in Connecticut, New York, Florida, Washington and Illinois. My round-trip commute during college, including the ferry ride, totaled five hours. And, if you are interested in meteorology, I experienced the first ever Super Derecho on May 8, 2009.

So now that I have introduced myself, why might you visit my office? Here are just a few reasons to make an appointment:

  • To review the information in your financial aid award
  • To accept, reduce or cancel your student loans
  • To submit documentation requested by the Financial Aid Office
  • To discuss your billing statement

If you need more information, or if you would like to set up an appointment, please contact me by email at or by phone at (309)762-8980. You can find my office in the Student Affairs Suite in Building C. I look forward to working with you!
