Special Circumstances

For most applicants, the FAFSA results accurately gauge how much the family is able to pay for college. Circumstances sometimes exist which are not captured by the FAFSA and are not reflected in the student's award. Please review the following situations:

  • 2014 household income will be less than 2013 due to job loss, retirement, loss of social security benefits, or loss of child support. 
  • Parents divorced in 2014, but have/will file a joint 2013 federal tax return. 
  • Parents 2013 medical or dental expenses exceeded 10% of their 2013 income.

If any apply to your family or you have other circumstances to be considered, you must complete a Special Consideration Worksheet and submit it online by selecting an option below.
