Professional Judgment Appeal

Professional Judgement Appeal Questionnaire

Professional Judgment refers to the authority of a school's financial aid administrator to adjust data elements on the FAFSA and to override a student's dependency status. These evaluations are done on case-by-case basis and with adequate documentation.

The decision of the financial aid administrator is final. There is no appeal. By law, neither the school's president nor the US Department of Education can override the financial aid administrator's decision.

If you have special circumstances that you would like to have evaluated by a financial aid administrator, please submit the following form:
