Submit Appeal

Please note: If you are doing an "Income Adjustment Appeal" and were also selected for verification, you must complete verification first. If you are completing a Dependency Status appeal, please do not complete verification, do your appeal first. Your FAFSA must be sent to us in a "rejected" status, meaning no parental information or signature was provided on the FAFSA. Otherwise, the system will not let you request an appeal.
