Hi my name is Brooke Kramer and I am a financial aid officer at Argosy University in Salt Lake City and today we are going to talk about making financial aid appeals. Now usually there's two times you need to make appeals. The first is if you are declined for financial aid due to be being in default on past student loans or aid. The first thing you're going to want to do if you are on default in past loans is contact your lender. Your lender will be able to let you know what you need to do in order to reinstate your financial aid. Normally this consists of setting up a month to month payment plan and making those payments on time for a number of months. These months can range from 6 months up to even 12 months depending on your lender. The second type of appeal you can make is if say you qualified for less than you thought you would because say your wife lost her job and you're not making as much money as you did the year before. At that time you can submit what's called a professional judgment where a university takes into account what your current income is instead of looking at your past years.
