Financial Aid Appeals Process

If you feel a college policy has been applied unfairly to your situation, you have the right to submit a complaint or appeal to the College Policies Complaint/Appeals Committee for review. For academic issues such as grade changes and problems with courses or instructors, you must contact the appropriate faculty member or academic dean.

Students who are approved on appeal must follow the plan set for them by the Appeals Committee and earn a “C” or better and not withdraw.  Appeals are continued as long as the student meets the minimum criteria set forth by the Appeals Committee and follows the academic plan approved.

Students who fail to complete the terms of the appeal will be expected to meet the SAP requirements using their own means before they will be considered eligible to receive financial aid.
