What financial aid applicants should know about the opportunity to receive a financial aid adjustment due to the recent unemployment of a family member or independent student…
Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation:
If you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then contact the school you plan to attend to discuss how your current financial situation has changed. Note that the school’s decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education. Similarly, the Office of Postsecondary Education published guidance in January 2021 that financial aid administrators may use professional judgment to reduce or adjust to zero the income earned from work for a student and/or parent if the student or parent has received unemployment benefits.
These changes were provided for by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) (Pub. L. 117- 2). The ARP appropriated approximately $39.6 billion for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) and represents the third stream of funding appropriated for HEERF to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.
