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 GA-Hampsey@wiu.edu 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!
