During the academic year, you and your family may experience a change in your financial situation, or you and your family may have unusual circumstances that have resulted in a reduction of your or your family's income that is considerably less than what was reported on the FAFSA.
Students and families who experience a loss in income, may qualify for additional federal student assistance. When completing the FAFSA, a student reports income information from two years prior. If you have had a loss in income and previously did not qualify for a Federal Pell Grant, you may be eligible for additional funds based on an income adjustment. Possible circumstances may include unemployment, death of a wage-earner (parent, if dependent; spouse, if independent), divorce, loss of untaxed income (such as child support). A review of your circumstance will require income and substantiating support documentation for the circumstance.
Each family's situation is unique and is reviewed on a case by case basis. Submission of an appeal does not guarantee approval. Families should consider alternative payment arrangements while waiting for the outcome of an appeal.
Each student will experience a different hardship so we encourage you to reach out to financial aid and speak to a counselor so we can determine whether or not you qualify to file an appeal. You may send an email to Finaidspecialcircumstances@citytech.cuny.edu to explain your change in income in detail or feel free to stop by office or ZOOM to speak to a counselor. Our ZOOM office hours are located on our website: http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/financial-aid/
The deadline to submit an appeal for FALL 2022 is November 11, 2022
