Eric Ruiz

He/Him/El VP of Admission & Enrollment Services, University of St. Francis

Eric is the son of immigrants, one that was undocumented and the first in his family to go and graduate from a 4 year institution. Early in his career Eric knew he was going to be working closely with financial aid and helping families figure out how to pay for college without a lot of debt. After 15 years, he continues to make waves at USF towards becoming undocumented friendly. Eric is dedicated to finding access for those who may feel may not have access, especially first generation and undocumented students & professionals. Eric tries to ensure that all are asking the right questions when it comes to figuring out college and career.
