Excerpt based on information from Last Minute College Financing Guide
If you’ve been accepted to your dream school and the financial aid you’ve been offered is not enough for you to attend, what can you or your parents do?
After reviewing a financial aid award package from a school you are really interested in, you can appeal the decision or ask for a professional judgment review if the aid is not enough. In your appeal, make sure to include any extenuating circumstances such as another sibling or a parent currently in college, reduced family income, disability, divorce, or any other factor that may be affecting your circumstances and your ability to afford the tuition and related costs of attendance.
Another reason to request a review would be if the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has caused a change in your family’s finances and savings. If you or your parents have suffered a job loss, a reduction in income, or another issue affecting your ability to pay for college specifically related to the pandemic, consider asking for a review of your financial aid package from your intended college or university.
