A Special Circumstances Appeal gives you a way to address your family’s specific situation and outline your financial needs. We can work with you to possibly adjust student aid awards and find ways to alleviate financial challenges. The federal government allows WSU to use professional judgment in certain situations to reevaluate your financial aid award when you (and/or a family member) document your special or extenuating circumstance.

For 2017-18, we are confident that our online Special Circumstances form will be available by the middle of April.

Join our mailing list to be notified of when our form is available.

Once finalized, the appeal form can be found on our Forms page.

Please contact us if you have questions.
