If your family situation changes after you receive your financial aid award, you can appeal the decision. Grounds for an appeal may include, but are not limited to: loss of a job, a death in the family, divorce or separation in the family or unusually high medical bills.
To appeal a financial aid award, send a letter to the Financial Aid Office, describing the ground(s) for the appeal. Appeals are reviewed throughout the academic year and are all handled on an individual basis.
