Special circumstances appeal

If there is a significant change in your financial situation, or if your FAFSA does not capture a financial difficulty that you are currently facing, you can appeal your FAFSA by submitting a special circumstance appeal (PDF). To pursue this appeal, you must have filed the FAFSA for the current year.

An example of a special circumstance includes a noticeable reduction in income due to job loss, reduction in work hours or high unreimbursed medical costs. The appeal could change your Adjusted Gross Income on the FAFSA and may qualify you for federal or state financial aid.
