If there were circumstances outside your control that caused your financial aid suspension, you have the option to submit an appeal.
Example: You had a medical emergency and had to withdraw from all of your classes. You were then suspended for being below the 67% completion requirement. You would complete and submit the Appeal form, medical documentation, and an Academic Plan for review.
Example: You previously completed a program at Madison College. You were then suspended for exceeding the Maximum Attempted Credits in your current program. You would explain on the Appeal form that you previously completed a program, how you plan to complete your current program in a timely manner, and indicate that the documentation is on file.

You must submit the following items in order to request reinstatement of your financial aid. The Appeal form can be found in your myMadisonCollege To Do List. The supporting documentation must be from a third party who supports the circumstances of the appeal, such as your doctor or employer.
