Financial Aid Re-Evaluation

If you or your family have suffered a financial setback that has changed your finances since you filled out your FAFSA, you may qualify to have your financial aid re-evaluated.

Re-evaluation could lead to a change in your expected family contribution (EFC) or a change in cost of attendance. An increase in grants is not guaranteed and is based on funding availability.

Financial aid is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which currently uses financial information from two years prior to estimate a household’s current circumstances. We recognize that households can experience changes in income or other finances that are not reflected in their information from two years prior. If you have been selected for Federal Verification, a re-evaluation cannot be processed for changes until verification is complete.

Types of Re-Evaluation

Loss of Income

  • Loss or change of employment
    • Note: A change in student’s aid eligibility will likely not occur if:
      • The person who lost employment has currently been rehired and is earning a similar or higher salary than two years prior
      • The loss or change to income was not significant
  • Divorce/Separation of parents/spouse
  • Change of marital status for dependent students
  • Death of parent(s) or spouse
  • Excessive out of pocket medical and/or dental expenses
    that exceed 11% of household’s Adjusted Gross Income
  • One-time taxable income (IRA disbursement, pension distribution, etc)

If you wish for us to consider a request for a Loss of Income, please submit the Loss of Income Form (listed under Special Circumstances Forms section) for the applicable year. A change to the EFC could, but is not guaranteed to, result in a change of eligibility for need based awards.
