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. Once your financial aid offer is complete, submit the Special Circumstance Request Form.  

Note that the school's decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education.


Shippensburg University has partnered with the PA Department of Education (PDE), Pennsylvania Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (PASFAA), Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), and others in support of the “PA FAFSA Go!” campaign which focuses on FAFSA completion for the state of Pennsylvania.  Historically, our PA students and residents leave money, and opportunity, on the table each year.  However, this campaign is an effort to FOCUS on FAFSA.  FOCUS on FAFSA Partners commit to Facilitating events beginning October 1, 2022, by Compiling resources and Uniting team members at the institution to Support students and parents to promote FAFSA completion.
