Changes in Your Financial Situation

A student may request a review of aid eligibility if the family's financial situation changed after the student filed the FAFSA. Staff may use professional judgement to re-evaluate a student's financial need by adjusting figures reported on the FAFSA when either of the two following situations apply:

  1. A family's financial situation has changed since they submitted the FAFSA, including a loss of earnings and/or a loss of untaxed income or benefits that were originally included on the FAFSA.
  2. The family has paid eligible expenses during the tax year that are not reflected on the FAFSA, including medical expenses not covered by insurance and/or educational loan payments that cannot be deferred.

To see if circumstances qualify for review, please contact the One Stop at OneStop@MiamiOH.edu, 513-529-0001, or visit us in the Campus Avenue Building.
