  • College Appeals for Financial Aid

    As financial circumstances have changed, students now have a unique opportunity to negotiate for more aid as colleges are looking to ensure levels of tuition.
     
    How to appeal for financial
    • Most colleges have a formal appeals (or informal negotiation) process, in which students can write a letter requesting that their financial aid packages be reconsidered.
    • Even in normal years, students have a particularly good shot at more financial aid if (1) their family's financial circumstances have changed, like a parent losing their job, or (2) if they have received a higher financial aid offer from a similar college.
    • This year, however, colleges may be more willing to provide additional financial assistance, just to guarantee some income through a tuition check (even for a lower-than-usual amount!)
