Students who are coded by the federal processor as 359 on the FAFSA and have not received a federal Pell grant and/or a Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized loan with us, or who are a code 360 and did not successfully complete course work during the valid academic year in which they also received a Pell grant and/or a Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized loan, will be required to submit a letter of explanation and appropriate documentation for review by a financial aid advisor.
The letter and documentation must show that an extraordinary or unusual case prevented the student from being successful in his or her studies. Situations such as family problems, serious illness for you or your immediate family member, serious or unusual circumstances, or extreme personal, emotional distress will be considered and third-party documentation must be presented. Such documentation might be a doctor’s statement in the case of illness, or a copy of the death certificate in the case of the loss of a close family member.
