5.13. Financial Aid Appeals

The enrollment services area may be able to offer additional assistance if special circumstances exist. Special circumstances are those situations that have a direct impact on your family’s ability to pay for your educational expenses. Students who have extenuating financial circumstances may request additional assistance by completing the “Request for Review/Special Circumstances” packet available from the enrollment services area. In order for any request to be considered, complete documentation must be submitted along with the request. All submitted requests will be evaluated and reviewed by the financial aid director, who will notify students of the outcome by Oglethorpe e-mail once the review process has been completed. To request a financial aid appeal based on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), please see the SAP section, below.
