Request for Financial Aid Review

The Office of Student Financial Planning recognizes that the Financial Aid process does not always reflect the unique circumstances of each family. As a result, we offer you the ability to provide us with this information. Students seeking a request for review must schedule a meeting with a financial aid representative through SSC

A Request for Financial Aid Award Review will be taken into consideration under the following special circumstances:

  • Loss/reduction of work income (at least four weeks).
  • Loss of employment or loss of untaxed income or benefit
  • Household has unusually high unreimbursed paid medical and/or dental expenses
  • Legal separation or divorce since submitting your financial aid application
  • Death of parent after filing your financial aid application
  • Any information or changes affecting the family's financial situation

A committee within the Office of Student Financial Planning will review your request. Decisions are based on the documentation provided and the guidelines established by Stetson University and federal/state regulations. All decisions of the committee are final. A CSS Profile is required in order to be considered for a request for review.

Your request will not be reviewed until we receive all of the required documentation. Please note that no additional institutional need-based aid will be considered if the student has not accepted need-based self-help (i.e. Federal Direct Subsidized Student Loan). 

After submission, allow up to ten business days for our office to review and evaluate your request. Any additional document requests may delay the decision process. 

A request for financial aid review may be requested at any time resulting from a change in family circumstances.
