What if my FAFSA information does not match my current circumstances?

Modified on Tue, 28 Jun 2022 at 10:20 PM

If you and your family have unusual circumstances that might affect your financial situation, complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and then notify our office.

In some cases, we may decide to take these unusual circumstances into account and adjust your cost of attendance or the information used to calculate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). If so, we also may ask you to provide adequate documentation to support any unusual circumstances.

 Possible examples of unusual circumstances may include:

  • Unusual medical or dental expenses that are not covered by insurance.
  • A family member who recently became unemployed.
  • Changes in income or assets that may affect your eligibility for financial aid.
  • your employment or your parents’ employment situations may have changed.
