FINANCIAL AID ALERT. Kim Marlow will be out of the office for the next three months. Although we will all miss her presence and support in the financial aid office, we will make every effort to ensure that your financial aid needs are met in a timely manner. In her absence, her e-mail is being monitored and questions redirected to the appropriate individual at the law school or at the main campus Office of Student Financial Aid. That office has also assigned financial aid counselors to support the law school until Kim returns in July. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us by e-mail at marlow@law.arizona.edu, by telephone at 621-5433, or in person in Room 118. Ms. Rosie Gallegos has graciously agreed to coordinate the financial aid office in Kim’s absence. Dean Henrietta Stover is also available to meet with students as needed. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to working with you on your financial aid.
