If the information reported on the FAFSA no longer reflects your financial or family situation, the Financial Aid office may be able to help! Contribution reviews are also known as “professional adjustments” or “financial aid appeals.” The federal Department of Education allows Financial Aid Offices to adjust FAFSA information for individual specific circumstances.
View the options below for FAFSA adjustment or contact our office with questions.
2022-2023 forms will be available in January 2022.
You must have filed a 2022-2023 FAFSA with 2020 income information before submitting a contribution review.
If you have had a loss of income or benefits since 2019 (the tax year reported on your FAFSA), the Financial Aid Office may be able to use more current information to determine your eligibility. Please use the parent form for adjustments to parental income and the student form for adjustments to student income. You may email the completed documentation to our office or ask for a link to securely upload the documents through Trailhead.
Marital Status Changes
If you are now single due to legal separation, divorce, or widowhood, use this form to report the change to our office and we can remove a spouse’s income from the FAFSA. Submit this form and supporting documentation either by email or ask us for a link to securely upload documents through Trailhead. You do not need to make adjustments if you marry after filing the FAFSA.
If you have had out-of-pocket medical or dental expenses for a member of your household that exceed $3000 in 2021, we may be able to adjust your FAFSA. The $3000 does not include any amount covered by insurance or insurance premiums. Follow the instructions on the form and either email the completed documents to our office or ask for a link to securely upload documents through Trailhead.
If you have had out-of-pocket expenses in 2021 due to a natural disaster, we may be able to adjust your FAFSA. Use the form below to report these expenses. You may either email the completed documents to our office or ask for a link to securely upload through Trailhead.
