Special Circumstances

Occasionally, unusual circumstances exist that may warrant reconsideration of financial aid eligibility. These special circumstances may be either changes that have occurred in your family circumstances since you filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or unusual family circumstances not accounted for on the FAFSA.  If your circumstances do not fit into one of the options listed below, you may still file the Special Circumstances Form for 'other circumstances' and attach a letter explaining your situation. 

Special Circumstances Forms

You will receive an email from the Financial Aid Office within 3-4 weeks notifying you of the decision. Requests will not be reviewed until all the proper documentation has been received.
