Financial Aid Appeal

Financial Aid Appeal


Appeals are available to you if your financial aid was suspended during a term you suffered an extraordinary circumstance such as illness, injury, death of a relative, or other extraordinary circumstance beyond your control, and that prevented the student from meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). You may also appeal for Maximum Time Frame (MTF) and additional degrees. The Appeal Committee meets monthly to review appeals. Appeal forms are available in the Financial Aid Office and detail all procedural requirements necessary to submit an appeal. The appeal process cannot be used if you owe a repayment of student aid funds, are in default on a student loan, or for Warning Status. Quarterly appeal deadlines apply, please plan accordingly.

If the Appeal Committee approves your appeal, your financial aid will be reinstated in a probationary status at the time the appeal is approved. Your new award will be based on available funding at the time of reinstatement and may not be the same as the original award. The Appeal Committee may also impose other conditions as part of the approval. If you do not meet the conditions of the approval, financial aid will be suspended.
