In some cases, students and their families may have special circumstances that were not taken into consideration on the FAFSA form. There are certain circumstances that you should report to the financial aid office that could have an impact on the amount of financial aid that you are being offered.
Financial Aid offices are permitted to make adjustments to your FAFSA for certain special circumstances.
Below you will find the forms that you must submit to report these special circumstances.
Please note that changes made to your FAFSA by our office may or may not result in additional aid. Allow a minimum of 2 weeks for processing. You will be notified by mail once a decision has been made.
