Filing an Appeal

Special Circumstance Appeals

If your family has experienced a change of circumstances such as loss of employment, excessive medical bills, death of a parent, etc., you may complete a Special Circumstance Appeal‌ to request a reevaluation of your financial aid eligibility. The form allows you to describe the financial changes in detail and the impact it has on your ability to meet your educational expenses. Any award adjustment will be contingent upon your eligibility and the availability of funds. Please review the form for more information and deadlines.

There are several situations that may warrant an appeal be submitted for special consideration. Please see the Financial Aid Forms page for a complete list of appeal forms. Each form contains information about the policies and procedures for that type of appeal.
