Student Life

Elon Brissette


Coordinator of Financial Counseling

My career at Alma began in


I help students by

helping them increase their personal financial awareness. I spend time one-on-one discussing their financial needs with them and helping them discover possible steps they may take to reach their financial goals, including but not limited to guiding them through budgeting their personal finances, providing scholarship resources, answering financial aid and student loan questions, and pointing them in the direction of other financial resources. I am also available to help students by hosting group sessions and workshops.
