Appeal Process

A student may request a Postsecondary Institutional Appeal if he/she did not meet the scholarship renewal requirements due to a verifiable illness or other circumstance beyond his/her control.

  • The student may request that the financial aid office at the home postsecondary institution he/she attended conduct a review of the courses included in the cumulative GPA.
  • In the case of illness or emergency beyond the student's control, the student may provide pertinent documentation regarding the illness or emergency to the appropriate home postsecondary institution.
  • The home postsecondary institution will review the studentís request and send recommendation of approval/denial.  Appeal request guidelines may be obtained through the financial aid office of a studentís home postsecondary institution.
  • An institutional academic progress appeal is to be filed within 30 days of the date of the ineligibility notice sent to the student or by the date established by the institution's financial aid office, whichever is later.  Ineligibility notices are posted to the student's Financial Aid Recipient History web screen during the summer following spring evaluation.
