Your cost of attendance (i.e., financial aid budget) is originally set to a standard amount based on a number of factors. You can request the financial aid office to review additional expenses by submitting this form.

Changes resulting from this review do not guarantee an increase in aid.

Financial circumstances have changed for many families as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. If your family’s financial situation has changed since you filed your FAFSA, you may want to submit a Parent Review form. The review process will allow ASU to reevaluate your FAFSA and your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) — the measurement of your family’s financial strength that helps determine your eligibility for need-based aid — to establish if you are eligible for additional aid based on the change in your circumstances.

Use this form to request a review of your dependency status. Dependency appeals are only approved for documented extenuating circumstances (i.e., abuse, abandonment, etc.). The Higher Education Act allows an aid administrator to make dependency overrides on a case-by-case basis for students with unusual circumstances. However, none of the conditions listed below, singly or in combination, qualify as unusual circumstances or merit a dependency override:

Expected Family Contribution measures your family's financial strength and is used to determine your eligibility for need-based aid during one academic year. You receive an EFC based on the processing results of your FAFSA. If the income information on your FAFSA has changed since the time you filed, you may submit an income reduction review. The review, if approved, will reevaluate your FAFSA and your EFC using the current information.
