University Scholarships and Financial Aid (USFA) strives to provide individual consideration of each student’s circumstances to the extent possible.  Students who have special circumstances they would like taken into consideration may submit an appeal to our office for review and consideration by the committee. 

USFA will consider the following types of appeals for Graduate Students:

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) – The student is not meeting SAP requirements and must appeal to regain aid eligibility. 

Cost of Attendance Appeal – If actual expenses for a term exceed our estimated costs, the student should contact USFA for more information regarding an appeal and the required documentation.
