Financial Aid Appeal Process

Students who are suspended for not making satisfactory academic progress standards may appeal to the Financial Aid Office for reinstatement of financial aid eligibility for one semester if they have extenuating circumstances which are generally beyond their control such as death in the immediate family, serious illness or injury, etc. The procedure for appeal is:

  1. Complete and submit the appropriate Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeals Request form with all required documentation by designated deadline. Appeal forms may be obtained from the financial aid website or the financial aid office.
  2. The student will indicate in writing to the Financial Aid Office the reasons why he/she did not make satisfactory academic progress and why his/her financial aid should not be suspended.
  3. Documentation to support the appeal is required and must be attached to the appeal form. Appeals submitted without documentation will not be reviewed.
