Going to college is expensive and many students depend upon some form of financial aid to provide the money they need to cover expenses like tuition and textbooks. Using professional consultants for filling out college financial aid forms is a practice that has been around forever. That being said, many college students still find themselves in a difficult situation when the college of their choice gives less aid than the student needs or turns down his or her request completely. Since 2009 though, financial appeal letters have become a major focus of financial aid consultants – primarily because they work!
At ACP we believe that by finding the “right fit” college a student’s opportunity to receive the best available financial package is maximized. Even then there are many reasons a college might deny or revoke financial aid. The financial aid administrator may determine the student’s financial status doesn’t warrant aid, they may choose to deny that student in favor of others or a student’s performance may also affect his or her chance to receive aid. Students who perform poorly may fall below their school’s requirements and see their aid revoked as a result.
ACP is familiar with the financial aid appeal process and has a proven track record of working with students throughout the appeals process. With ACP’s support, students have secured financial aid that had previously been denied and in instances where students had financial aid but then lost it, ACP has a track record of success in getting the college to reinstate it.
The financial aid appeal process is unique to each individual student and ACP provides this service on a one-on-one basis to ensure that each unique situation is addressed appropriately. For more information on how you can benefit from this services, contact us.
