Need to Appeal Your Financial Aid Eligibility:

*It is important to complete the correct form when appealing your financial aid ineligibility.

Appeal for Qualitative Ineligibility - Complete this form if you are ineligible due to your GPA dropping below a 2.0, your completion rate dropping below 67%, or if you completely failed or withdrew from your last semester of attendance

Appeal for Quantitative Ineligibility - Complete this form if you are ineligible due to having attempted 150% of the credits required to complete your degree.

Appeal for both Qualitative and Quantitative Ineligibility - Complete this form if you are ineligible due to both having attempted 150% of the credits required for your degree and have not met one of the qualitative requirements, such as GPA below 2.0, completion rate below 67%, and/or complete failure/withdraw from past semester.

Re-Appeal - Complete this form if you were previously denied an appeal and subsequently enrolled and completed at least 6 credit hours successfully without the use of Financial Aid but are still ineligible due to not having a 2.0 cumulative GPA and/or not having a 67% cumulative completion rate. 

Special Circumstances / Professional Judgement

There are instances when a student's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may not reflect the family's current situation.  These are special circumstances that can be considered that may impact a student's financial aid eligibility.  In rare cases, a financial aid administrator may exercise professional judgment to adjust the student's Cost of Attendance or the data that determines the students Expected Family Contribution (EFC). 

·         Death of a parent or spouse                  

·         Loss of income and/or recurring income 

·         Divorce/separation 

·         Unusual out of pocket medical or dental expenses that exceed 11% of Family's Adjusted Gross Income 

If you feel that you have a special circumstance that warrants a Professional Judgement, please make an appointment today with a specialized Financial Aid Advisor via Navigate:
