Financial Aid Appeal Process

A student who desires to appeal the suspension of his/her financial aid award may do so by submitting a financial aid appeal form with documentation to the Financial Aid Services Central Processing Center (FASCPC).  Incomplete appeal packets will not be reviewed.

A complete appeal packet contains the following:

  • A signed Appeal Form
  • An Education Plan completed and signed by the student and the advisor
  • A signed, typed, or written letter detailing the circumstances for each unsuccessful term
  • An unofficial transcript
  • Documentation of mitigating circumstances beyond the student’s control (i.e. death in family-obituary or death certificate, hospitalization-medical records or letter from physician, etc.)
  • The student’s Degree Plan
  • The student’s Student Progress Evaluation (available in the Office of Student Services)

If the appeal is granted the student is only awarded aid for one semester and progress is checked after each semester while on appeal to ensure the student is meeting the terms of their appeal.

Appeal decisions are sent to the student’s MyBSCC account. Students who have reached their 600% Lifetime Eligibility for Pell Grant funds are not eligible to appeal.

The following dates have been established as priority and review deadlines for appeals.
