Change of Circumstances
The Financial Aid Office recognizes a family's economic situation may change for a variety of reasons from one year to the next. We suggest you notify us in writing of changes in financial circumstances resulting from one or more of the following conditions:
- Loss of employment or significant reduction in income or benefits
- Unusually high medical expenses not covered by insurance
- Other unusual circumstances or expenses
The family will be required to document their circumstance by completing our "Documentation for Professional Judgement" form. Each subsequent year a particular special circumstance persists, the family will be asked to submit documentation.
International students: a change in the number of household members in college does not constitute a special circumstance. This should be taken into account on the initial application and planned for accordingly.
