The U.S. Department of Education gives financial aid administrators the ability to consider a family's special circumstances in determining a student's financial need. Special circumstances may have occurred since you filed the FAFSA or they might be circumstances that were not accounted for on the FASFA.

Supporting documentation is required for all special circumstance requests. Please submit documentation directly to the Financial Aid Office by email, fax, or mail.
