Changing your aid

There are a few cases in which you may want to contact One Stop and explain your own extenuating circumstances.

Special circumstances

If you or your family have experienced a significant change in your financial situation we invite you to review your situation with a One Stop counselor. One Stop may be able to reevaluate your financial aid eligibility in light of situations such as job or income loss, divorce or separation, death in the family, or other unusual circumstances. Additional aid or loan options may be available to help address your situation.

Cost of attendance adjustment

In certain cases One Stop can work with you to document costs that differ from the standard cost of attendance. This is only useful in unique cases, and an adjustment in costs doesn't always lead to additional aid. However, it is standard practice for students studying abroad, for instance.

Dependency status

Dependency status defines the degree to which your parents are viewed as responsible for your education. Read the Federal definition of an independant student and take a look at the limited circumstances that can be documented to appeal your status.
