Our Best Answer: Can I appeal for more financial aid?

Financial Aid Award Appeals

If something has changed in your family situation since filing your FAFSA, such as one of your parents losing a job or having major medical expenses, you can appeal your family contribution. You must provide Student Financial Services with an appeal request explaining the change in circumstances and any documentation that supports this change (verification of unemployment, medical bills, etc.) Student Financial Services will evaluate your application and may recalculate your family contribution which could change your financial aid award. LaGuardia will conduct this re-evaluation only if there have been major changes in your family’s financial situation.
