Did You Know You Can You Appeal Your Financial Aid Offer?

Many colleges are open to increasing the amount of aid being offered, so, if your aid award does not meet your needs, appeal.

There are many valid reasons you may qualify for additional aid. Your family’s financial circumstances may have changed since you applied or you may have received a more generous offer from a school you’re not as interested in attending. Share your situation with your financial aid office representative and begin a dialog.

The New York Times offers useful strategies and resources to help students successfully negotiate their financial aid packages.
