Special Circumstances, Unusual Circumstance & Homeless Youth

In accordance with federal regulations, the Financial Aid Office may take into account special circumstance(s) that affect the family's ability to pay for a college education that are not reflected in the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Financial Aid administrators can make adjustments to a student's expected family contribution (EFC) for education expenses and/or financial aid dependency status as determined by federal guidelines. These adjustments are only made after receiving sufficient documentation from a student to justify an exception to normal federal financial aid program guidelines

Students and family members that experience a significant change in income and/or circumstances may request that the school they are attending review the information submitted on their FAFSA. Special Circumstance requests require a careful review and additional processing time. There is no guarantee a request will result in more aid or different types of aid awarded to you.

To get started please complete the Special Circumstance Review Request.

If you did not report information about your parents on your FAFSA because you indicated you are homeless, or at risk of being homeless, reach out to Mid's Financial Aid team. Additional documents and forms may be needed.

The U.S. Department of Education determines your student dependency status based on the information you provided in the FAFSA. In certain situations, students may submit an appeal requesting that their dependency status to be overridden. A petition can only be approved in certain limited and exceptional circumstances.

The unwillingness and/or inability of your parents to financially support you and/or living on your own and paying your own bills are not by themselves reasons that demonstrate "exceptional circumstances" and cannot be considered.
