Appealing Financial Aid Suspension

Students placed on financial aid suspension status and denied financial aid have the right to appeal. To appeal, you must submit a written appeal to the director of financial aid. The appeal should include the following information:

  • A statement in your own words explaining why you failed to earn the required credits and/or required GPA for multiple terms
  • The actions you will take, or have taken, to correct the situation and prevent it from reoccurring
  • If the appeal involves a medical reason, documentation from a doctor indicating you are cleared to return to school and that medical condition will not prevent you from being successful in the future
  • If the appeal involves exceeding the maximum time frame to earn a degree, documentation from your academic adviser which lists the remaining courses required to complete your degree

We include appeal forms with all financial aid suspension notices. Appeal forms also are available in the financial aid office or online.

Students who successfully appeal their suspended status will be placed on financial aid probation.

If the director of financial aid denies the appeal, a student can take the appeal to the vice president for enrollment management.

Please note that undergraduate students who have reached junior status (90 credits) with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 cannot appeal suspended status. Students only may regain financial aid eligibility after earning a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. This is a federal financial aid regulation and can't be appealed.
