Financial Aid Suspension Appeal

A student has the right to appeal if he/she feels that he/she has complied with the requirements of the satisfactory academic progress policy or believes that there are factors such as undue hardship because of the death of a relative, an injury or illness, or similar special circumstances that could affect the decision, or that said decision was not correctly made. Financial Aid suspension appeals can be submitted online.
