Message from the Director

Understanding your options when you experience a reduction of income.

We recognize that unexpected financial difficulties might impact your ability to pay for college. Sudden job loss or increased educational expenses that occurred after you filed your initial financial aid application might make financing your degree more challenging than you had planned.

Our Financial Aid and Scholarship Services team can work with you to review the recent changes in your financial circumstances and determine whether those changes could result in new or additional financial aid eligibility. These special circumstances are evaluated on a case-by-case basis through a financial aid review process based on the academic year you would like to be reviewed for. Learn more about special circumstances here.

To be reviewed for the current 2019–2020 academic year (Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Summer 2020), submit the Student Income Reduction Review, Student Budget Review, and/or Parent Review forms, plus all corresponding documentation by April 20, 2020.

To be reviewed for the upcoming 2020–2021 academic year (Fall 2020 and Spring 2021) Student Income Reduction Review and Parent Review forms are accessible now and can be submitted any time. The Student Budget Review form will be available for you to submit in July 2020. Please note, reviews for the 2019–2020 academic year will be prioritized for processing.

If you are unsure if your situation qualifies, please call us toll free at 855-278-5080 or chat with a team member who can explain the process.

It is our goal to ensure that you can continue your education without interruption.
