If you have additional expenses or other unrelated expenses that are not already included, you can ask to have your cost of attendance (COA) evaluated for a potential adjustment. In some cases, these adjustments will have no impact on the financial aid award, depending on the type and amount of the award. You must submit necessary documentation to justify the change to the Financial Aid Office for review. Some examples of these expenses are:
- Unusually high medical or dental expenses for the current aid year that are not covered by insurance
- Unusually high child care costs
- Unusually high transportation costs
- Study Abroad expenses
Decisions for an adjustment to your COA are at the discretion of the Financial Aid Office, and all decisions are final. Adjustment requests will not be accepted for housing, automobile or household repairs, consumer debt (credit cards, loan payments), household bills and expenses, or any other expense already taken into consideration when determining your COA.
