Financial Aid or Scholarships Appeals

For disputes related to the awarding or renewal of financial aid or scholarships, the student should consult the Financial Aid Office or the particular college or department under which the award is granted to ascertain the appropriate channel of inquiry.  Also the student should obtain a copy of the scholarship eligibility criteria.  Such disputes can be referred for appellate review only upon the recommendation of the Vice President for Student Affairs or the Provost or their designee.  Where the grounds for denial of a scholarship or financial aid involve academic dishonesty, the matter should follow the procedure described for “Academic Dishonesty by Student Enrolled in a Course.”
