Financial Aid Appeals

In certain situations, students and/or their families may appeal for a re-evaluation of their eligibility for financial assistance. In other situations, students may appeal if they are not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress, but want to remain eligible for financial aid.

Examples of circumstances we will consider include:

  • Loss of income due to layoff, loss of employment
  • Major repairs after a natural disaster
  • High medical costs not covered by insurance
  • Increased educational expenses above our standard budgets
  • Extension of financial aid beyond 15 quarters or regaining eligibility (from not meeting academic progress) due to extenuating cirucmstances
  • Dependency status re-evaluations due to adverse home situations
  • Unforseen circumstances that prevented on-time submission of documents and/or financial aid application

Note: High mortgage costs, credit card / consumer debt, and other discretionary expenses incurred in many households will not be considered in our evaluation of your eligibility for financial aid.
