Meet the Financial Aid Staff

Hey, we've all been there. Every employee in the Financial Aid Office was and/or is a student. We have all played the balancing act of research papers, family life, and finances. Our goal is to use our own experiences to offer the best services to you...our students.

Julianne Louttit - Director of Financial Aid

I began working in Financial Aid while I was attending LaRoche College, as a student participating in the Federal Work-Study Program.  My first job after graduation was at Point Park College in the Financial Aid Department.  I then worked at Computer Tech Proprietary School in Financial Aid, and now have been at BC3 for 17 years in the Financial Aid Office.  In 2010, I completed my master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Geneva College.
