If there has been a change in your or your family's circumstances, you will want to contact the Office of Financial Aid.

To have a special circumstance reviewed, students must meet with their financial aid counselor to ensure that all appropriate documentation is submitted to the professional judgment committee for review.

Once all documentation has been collected, the financial aid counselor will electronically submit the case to the professional judgment committee for review. The committee will provide a decision to the financial aid counselor, who will contact the student regarding the decision.

Decisions made by the committee are final. There is no appeal process to the U.S. Department of Education.

Please review the website page about Special Circumstances here.
