Professional Judgment

What is a Professional Judgment?

A financial aid professional may exercise professional judgment and change elements in the federal need analysis to account for circumstances that he/she/they feels have not been adequately considered in the original FAFSA. In addition, a financial aid professional may increase the “Cost of Attendance” to account for extraordinary expenses a student might acquire while attending the College.

If you feel you have a special circumstance that requires additional review, you can complete the Professional Judgment Request Form (below) and submit to the Office of Financial Aid via one of the methods listed below.
