Appeals & Waivers
In the event a student is out of compliance and they have a mitigating circumstance that can be supported by documentation; a student can appeal for Federal Financial Aid and/or complete a New York State Aid Waiver (see below).
Academic Plan of Study
If an appeal and/or a waiver has been approved, the student may need to complete an Academic Plan of Study. This means that the student would need to meet the terms of the plan in order to be eligible for Federal Financial Aid.
