What is the process?
Federal regulations allow an institution to use professional judgment on a case-by-case basis to determine if an unusual or extraordinary situation affected the student’s progression toward the successful completion of his or her program of study. The decision to permit appeals and the methods involved in reviewing appeals is at the discretion of the Financial Aid Office.
- Illness or injury of the student or the student’s dependent (medical documentation required)
- Death of a family member (death certificate or Obituary notice documentation required)
- Interpersonal problems with family or friends, difficulty balancing responsibilities (documentation required – Two letters, one personal and one professional)
- Financial difficulties (documentation required – Bills, statements, collection notices, or eviction notices)
- Maximum Time Frame Students (Current degree audit which shows the students current program, number of classes needed to complete program and current registration status).
- Why the student believes he or she failed to make SAP
- What has changed in the student’s situation that will allow him or her to succeed at next evaluation
