Financial Aid Special Circumstance Appeal

While the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is intended to determine the amount a student can reasonably be expected to pay toward a college education, circumstances occasionally arise that make the FAFSA data an inaccurate picture of a family's resources. The Special Circumstance Appeal allows the Financial Aid Office to evaluate your current financial and educational circumstances with the possibility of increasing your aid eligibility.

Student Information

First and Last Name

LCC ID (help)

LCC E-mail Address


Please select your circumstances below.

Loss of employment
Change in marital status
Unable to provide parent data on FAFSA

In the event that my appeal to file my FAFSA without parent information is not approved, I would like to be considered for a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan for the following amount:

Loss of untaxed income
Unreimbursed medical expenses
Parent in college
School and living expenses exceed cost of attendance
Other (please describe below)

Please type a detailed message explaining your circumstances.

Statement of Understanding

By clicking the Submit button below, I understand that I should watch my LCC student email for a message which will indicate the forms and documentation I need to collect and return to the financial aid office.
