Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation

If you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then email us at and let us know how your current financial situation has changed.  Please include the student’s SU ID in the email.
