Students are required to inform the Student Financial Aid Office of any additional financial resources received after completing financial aid applications.
Additional funds received that exceed the student’s eligibility for need-based financial aid may result in that aid replacing any loan funds the student has been awarded. The Student Financial Aid Office is required to replace any campus-based funds awarded with the external funding, if required to resolve the over award situation.
If the family’s financial situation has changed since completing the FAFSA or Renewal Application, the student’s financial aid eligibility may be re-evaluated. In order for this re-evaluation to occur, a letter addressing the change in financial situation should be sent to the Student Financial Aid Office after June 1 (for the upcoming academic year).
Students who have extraordinary living expenses, child care expenses, health care expenses, etc. may have those costs considered in the Cost of Attendance by completing a Budget Appeal form, available in the Student Financial Aid Office.
