Approved SAP Appeal Question

Postby ShadowLinn » Fri Dec 21, 2012 8:55 pm

Hi! I had been attending a local community college off and on when I was in my early twenties and during that time my financial aid was suspended. I took a break from school and I decided to return eight years later, but I was ineligible for financial aid. The appeal I submitted my first semester back was denied, so I have been paying out of pocket each semester. I submitted a second appeal for the upcoming spring 2013 semester and the appeal was approved with some serious stipulations. My concern is that I will be relocating to another state and even though my gpa now meets the financial aid requirements, my completion ratio will not until I reach my junior year. When I transfer to my new school, will I need to submit a new appeal to that particular school? Am I able to just show my new school proof that my appeal was approved at my prior school? I am fearful that if I have to appeal at my new school, it will be denied and I can not afford to pay out of pocket for out-of-state tuition.

Your new school will most likely have you submit another appeal, since policies can differ between institutions. However, to know for sure, you will need to contact your new school's financial aid office.

If you do need to appeal again, it's a positive sign your previous school approved it, so it would worth mentioning. But again, appeals are generally school-specific.
