We would encourage you to file an appeal: 1) If you have special circumstances that could not be explained on the FAFSA application OR 2) If you or your family have experienced a significant change, such as a significant change of income, new medical expenses, or a change in marital status. Although not all circumstances will result in an adjustment of your financial aid award, many appeals generate a change in financial aid.
You must have already completed a FAFSA application before applying for an appeal.
You can complete an appeal application available online or write a letter of explanation.
If you have additional questions or concerns regarding what you can do to address your change of circumstances, please contact Blugold Central. We will work closely with you to explore resources available to you.
