Types of Appeals

University Scholarships and Financial Aid (USFA) strives to provide individual consideration of each student's circumstances to the maximum extent possible.  Students who have special circumstances they would like taken into consideration, (i.e. cost of attendance, change in FAFSA data, dependency status) may submit an appeal to our office for review and consideration by a committee.

USFA will consider the following types of appeals:

Cost of Attendance Appeal - If actual expenses for a term exceed our estimated cost of attendance, please review the appeal process if an appeal is applicable.  If you have questions please contact our office. 

Dependency Appeal - Depending on the circumstances, the student may appeal to be independent for purposes of evaluating FAFSA data.

FAFSA Data Appeal - The student may request to have FAFSA data reviewed based on a change of circumstances.

Satisfactory Academic Progress - The student is not meeting Satisfactory Academic Requirements and must appeal to regain aid eligibility.
