If you or your family have experienced unforeseen financial changes due to job loss, income reduction, asset value reduction, illness, etc... or you are facing increased educational expenses that affect your ability to fund your degree, Financial Aid and Scholarship Services can review your financial aid awards to determine if you are eligible for more federal funding. Follow these steps to begin a re-evaluation of your financial aid:
Establish the nature of the change in circumstances and the financial impact by submitting the applicable forms.
Student Income Reduction Review
Submit the Student Income Reduction Review eForm if you, the student, have had a reduction in income since you filed your FAFSA.
Student Budget ReviewSubmit the Student Budget Review eForm if you have additional expenses related to your cost of attendance.
If you’re a dependent student, you may submit the Parent Review eForm if your parent(s) have had a reduction in income since you filed your FAFSA or if they have additional expenses.
Whether or not the change in financial circumstance has an actual impact on your aid eligibility;
Timeliness of your original application for financial aid (filing the FAFSA);
Timeliness and completeness of the submission of your review, the nature of the change in circumstances, as well as the availability of funds.
We know that there are many circumstances that may impact a family’s ability to contribute to a student’s education, and our team is prepared to work with you to understand your options and determine if any additional aid may be available based on your individual circumstances.
