Requests for Reconsideration

Families with questions concerning their financial aid awards should contact their assigned financial aid director in the Financial Aid Office.  A request for reconsideration of a financial aid award must be made in writing (email is acceptable) to the student's assigned financial aid director by the parent(s) of a dependent student or by an independent student.  The letter or email should address changes in income or circumstances beyond the family's control or additional information not already presented in the financial aid application.  The student's assigned financial aid director will be in touch to discuss possible next steps. 

A Financial Aid Appeals Committee meets regularly to discuss requests for reconsideration.  Requests for reconsideration are processed on a first come, first served basis and reconsideration requests regarding returning student awards will be considered only after initial awards are completed for all returning students.
