If you have been suspended from receiving financial aid, either for exceeding the maximum timeframe or for failing to meet the GPA or completion rate standards, you are entitled to go through the appeal process for financial aid reinstatement. Federal law allows schools to approve appeals if extenuating circumstances affected a student’s ability to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (S.A.P.).
To be considered you must:
Register for a Financial Aid Appeal Workshop through insideBC under the Financial Aid tab. (Reinstatement requests WILL NOT be accepted unless you attend a Financial Aid Appeal Workshop)
Upon attending the Financial Aid Appeal Workshop you must complete the 2013-2014 Appeal for Financial Aid Reinstatement Form.
*Appeals not meeting the “extenuating circumstances” category will not be accepted. Furthermore, submission of an appeal does NOT GUARANTEE the reinstatement of students’ financial aid. Therefore, students should be prepared to pay for their books and other school related expenses pending the outcome of their appeal.
