Appeal Process

A student who becomes ineligible for federal student aid due to not meeting the financial aid standards of satisfactory academic progress may appeal for a review of that determination.  A student who believes s/he has extenuating circumstances that affected his or her ability to progress satisfactorily should appeal in writing within 30 days of the date of the letter indicating a loss of financial aid eligibility.  The letter should be addressed to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee and be submitted to the Financial Aid office.  A successful appeal may preserve the student’s eligibility for federal student aid in the following semester.
