Financial Aid Forms
Financial Aid Forms
The Federal Appeal form is for students who have lost their financial aid due to not making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). This means that a student did not pass enough credits during the academic year. The Appeal form is for Federal Aid ONLY and does not include the PA State Grant (PHEAA). The review for Satisfactory Academic Progress is done at the end of every spring semester.
- If you did not make Satisfactory Academic Progress after the 2018-2019 academic year and plan to appeal, the prioity deadline to submit the form is June 28, 2019.
- Appeals are reviewed in the order they are received and students will be notified if they have been approved or denied aid for the 2019-2020 academic year.
- If your appeal form and other documentation is not received by the priority deadline of June 28, there is no guarantee that your appeal will be reviewed prior to bill due date for the fall semester. You will be responsible for any balance due to the university and will need to arrange payment with the Office of Student Accounts (OSA).
- The final deadline to submit appeals for the fall 2019 semester is Friday, August 9, 2019. Appeals sumbitted after this date will not be accepted; and there will be no exceptions made.
The Authorization to Release Information form is to be completed by the student, giving the Office of Financial Aid the permission to speak with persons other than the student about his/her account.
