Petition To Use 2016 Income to determine Financial Aid Eligibility for 2017-2018. The petition due to income change is not applicable to Graduate students since only federal non-need based loans are available.
 
The standard calculation from the FAFSA uses the 2015 calendar year income and resources. If you or your parents have had a permanent change resulting in a subtantial decrease in expected income, you may request a review of your circumstances with a financial aid counselor to determine if it will result in further financial aid eligibility. Financial aid funds are limited. In some cases we may be able to approve your revision but unable to offer you more aid. To request a review of your circumstances, please see a financial aid counselor at the financial aid office. The deadline to file this petition is April 15, 2018
