Cares Act 2021

Due to the pandemic and other consequential factors, economic hardship is a reality for many families at this time. When you originally completed the 2021-22 FAFSA, income information from 2019 was used. If you or your parent(s) income has drastically changed for 2021, you may qualify to be considered for additional financial aid support.

Examples of special circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • Medical costs not covered by insurance
  • Parent loss of income
  • Child support ending
  • Property loss not covered by insurance
  • Unusual debt or one-time income
  • Tuition expenses at an elementary or secondary school
  • Parent in college

The financial aid administrator must have compelling reasons to use professional judgment to make adjustments due to special circumstances. The administrator’s decision is final and can’t be appealed.

If you believe you qualify to be considered for additional financial aid support, please fill out this request form and submit it along with all required materials to the Financial Aid Office.
