Request for Review of Financial Aid Award

Date due: November 11

Description: 

If your family’s financial situation changes significantly after your application for financial aid is processed, you or your parent(s) may request a review of your financial aid award.

Examples of situations that we review include extended unemployment, extraordinary medical expenses, and changes in family size or sibling educational costs. Also, if there is additional information that you did not indicate in the application process that you would like us to consider, you can include it in this review request. Use this form only if you find that the total financial aid offered you, including scholarship and the loan/job eligibility, is insufficient to assist you in covering your educational costs.

Instructions: 

In order for us to adjust your financial aid award, you must demonstrate how the information in the Request for Review form might affect your family’s ability to contribute toward your educational costs. When you submit the form, you must also attach any applicable documentation that substantiates and explains the circumstances that you are presenting. Mail or fax the form and all documentation to Student Financial Services.
