Professional Judgement for Special Circumstances

The financial aid staff calculates each financial aid offer based on financial need as demonstrated by the FAFSA. The calculation is based on a student’s and family’s prior prior calendar-year income. Students and families who have experienced significant changes in family structure, size or income should contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss the situation. If a special review is appropriate, the student will be asked to complete a Special Circumstances application, and will be advised what additional documentation is required.
