The UW-Eau Claire Financial Aid Office has established an appeal process to allow for a possible recalculation of financial need based on special or unusual circumstances. Although not all changes in circumstance will result in an adjustment to your financial aid eligibility, if you are interested in pursuing an appeal, please complete and submit an Appeal Request Form. You may either download and print this form, or complete and submit the student on-line version or parent on-line version. Once your request is received, a financial aid counselor will contact you regarding the next step in the appeal process. Please allow up to two weeks for a response.
Also, please be aware, the student must file a current year FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) before an appeal may be processed. And so, please make sure this step has been completed before submitting the Appeal Request to the Financial Aid Office.
