Students may appeal the denial of State and/or Federal Title IV student financial aid due to not meeting SAP requirements. Successful appeals must show that special circumstances (i.e. illness, family emergency) contributed to not meeting SAP requirements and include:
Appeals are submitted to OSFA and will be reviewed by a Director, Assistant Director or Counselor in the Office of Student Financial Aid. Students will be notified by email of the outcome when the review is complete. If approved, financial aid eligibility will be reinstated for the academic period specified by the reviewer.
Students who do not maintain satisfactory academic progress and whose appeal is denied lose eligibility for State and Federal Title IV student financial aid for the entire grading period, as defined by the component's academic division, and all subsequent periods until SAP requirements are met. Requests to re-evaluate the appeal and reverse the denial may be initiated by contacting the OSFA Director or Executive Director.
It is the student's responsibility to present evidence to the Office of Student Financial Aid at the time he or she has met minimum requirements for reinstatement of State and Federal Title IV student financial aid.
