What can be done if a dependent student or an independent student have a loss of income after filing the FAFSA.
The Office of Student Financial Aid offers a family the option to appeal their financial circumstances.
Federal regulations permit the Office of Student Financial Aid the ability to make adjustments to a student’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if a special or extenuating circumstance(s) exists that has a significant financial impact to the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number. A student has the ability to submit a Change in Circumstance Appeal along with supporting documentation to request a reevaluation to adjust certain information reported on the FAFSA.
The appeal form is available on our website starting June 1st. of each new award year. Please seek advisement before completing the form. Visit your campus or call 404-413-2600. for assistance.
