The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office can consider these factors:
- Divorce or legal separation (you or your parents), or death of a parent or spouse that occurred after you filed your FAFSA
- Loss or reduction in parent income caused by unemployment or disablement
- Loss or reduction in your (the student's) income
- Major medical/ dental expenses
- Expenses caused by a natural disaster or major catastrophe
- Termination or reduction in child support payments or Social Security benefits
Please note that we are unable to make adjustments that include cost of living adjustments, bankruptcy, and consumer debt. We know that these situations may have a real impact on a family’s ability to pay for college, however, they do not pertain to the data collected on the FAFSA, and as such we are unable to consider them based upon law.
The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office will review the request and notify you of its decision via e-mail.
