If the family has unusual financial circumstances, appeal for more financial aid by asking the college financial aid administrator for a professional judgment review of those circumstances.

These can include changes in income or the net value of assets from last year to the current year and anything that distinguishes the family from the typical family.

Be prepared to provide a letter and supporting documentation for any appeal submitted to the college or university financial aid office.
