How We Determine Need
Each student has the right to request a review of her financial aid award any time there has been a significant change in family circumstances, or if the information on the original application was inaccurate. Please use the Request for Review form below.
Reviews are conducted by the Student Financial Services Review Committee. In most cases, the decision of the committee is final.
When an issue under review requires an exception to a policy, a student may request that it be reviewed by the Financial Aid Appeals Committee. Exceptions to policy include appeals of the 32 credit rule and all international review requests.
The Financial Aid Appeals Committee is chaired by the vice president of enrollment and includes one member of the faculty, the dean of students and the controller. The director of student financial services is a nonvoting member of the committee.
Students must present appeals in writing. The committee will consider the appeal as soon as possible. It generally takes one to two weeks for the committee to convene and review the appeal. A decision will be given to the student in writing within 48 hours after the appeal is heard. The decision of the appeals committee is final in all cases.
