Appeal Process

**Prospective students interested in applying for an appeal must wait until they have received an offer of admission. This is to ensure that families are not completing all the work of an appeal if they are not admitted to college. The initial award sent will be based on 2020 income information and appeals will be accepted after winter break for those accepted ED/EA. A review will be completed by our office at that time.
