We Work Closely With You

Sometimes things change. You may always appeal to the Financial Aid Committee for a reconsideration of your award decision if your family experiences a significant change in circumstances. We meet on a regular basis throughout the year to discuss appeals for more aid. 

If you have new information to bring to our attention, you should contact us to request a review of your award decision.
