Special Financial Aid Reviews

In some cases a financial aid application may not reflect a student’s or family’s current financial situation. In some cases a family faces Special Circumstances (e.g., lost or reduced income, death, divorce, illness, natural disaster, etc.) which may increase a student's eligibility for financial aid.

A Special Circumstances Form is used by the Financial Aid Office to report unusual situations faced by applicants and/or their families. Special Circumstances reviews are conducted on a case-by-case basis.

If you have a situation about which you are uncertain, or if you have any questions regarding Special Circumstances, contact us to discuss the matter.


Tuition Deferments and Bookstore Vouchers

Many financial aid recipients are eligible to defer their tuition and/or purchase required books and supplies before financial aid funds arrive at the college.  Contact the Financial Aid Office to see if you are eligible.

Please review the Payment Options Web site.


Withdrawing or Dropping Out Can Cost Financial Aid Recipients Money!

Students receiving Federal Financial Assistance are subject to Federal repayment regulations if they stop attending the College (officially or unofficially) before 60% of a term has been completed.   If the student stops attending before this time period the college and student must return a percentage of "unearned" financial aid.  This will result in a bill being sent to the student.  Students who do not repay their financial aid may lose their eligibility for future financial aid.

Contact the Financial Aid Office before you stop attending classes to learn about the consequences!
