Special Circumstances

"Special Circumstances", such as changes in employment, loss of a benefit or other type of income, or unusual costs associated with your education, such as childcare to enable you to attend school, should be brought to our attention throughout the academic year.

If you would like to report a “Special Circumstance” that may have occurred after you completed your FAFSA to the financial aid office, please submit a personal statement explaining your situation. (If you are a dependent student, you or your parent can provide the statement.) Make sure to include a narrative of events with dates, and an explanation of how these events affected you and your family’s ability to pay for your education.

Please send your email statement directly to: Lisa Michaud, Associate Director of Financial Aid.

Note: You may be asked to provide supporting documentation.
