Professional Judgement Appeal Questionnaire
Professional Judgment refers to the authority of a school's financial aid administrator to adjust data elements on the FAFSA or CADAA. These evaluations are done on a case-by-case basis and with adequate documentation. Not all income reductions will result in an increase of the amount of your award. If you believe your income has changed, and would like your case evaluated by a Financial Aid administrator, please fill out the questionnaire below.
- Independent students: You may qualify for additional funding if you or your spouse (if married) had a reduction in income.
- Dependent students: You may qualify for additional funding if you or your parents had a reduction in income.
*Please note you may be required to submit copies of your 2021 W2’s and/or 2021 Federal Tax Return Transcripts (this pertains to appeals for the 2022-2023 academic year).
Dependency Override: If you are requesting a review of your dependency status for financial aid, please complete the questionnaire. A Financial Aid administrator will follow up with you to schedule a meeting appointment if additional information is required.
**Income Reduction Appeals for the academic year of 2023-2024 will open in July of 2023.
