Special Circumstances Review

Adjustments can sometimes be made to a student's financial aid package based upon special circumstances in their lives. These reasons can include, but are not limited to: an involuntary change in employment within the household, recent divorce or separation in the family, death of a parent or spouse, additional daycare expenses, medical expenses and / or other costs not included in the student budget.

How to Apply for Special Circumstance Review
