You have three options for completing this form:
Submit this document if there are special circumstances that should be taken into consideration during the initial evaluation for aid, or if after you receive your financial aid award you believe there were circumstances or financial details that were not addressed. This form is used as a supplement to the university need-based grant application and families should provide new financial details not originally included in the application documents. Any request for need-based re-evaluation must begin with the submission of this special circumstance form and the required documentation.
From the chart below select and check the box for the category most relevant to your situation. You can select multiple categories. Complete the sections for each category you have selected and submit this form and the required documentation to the Office of Financial Aid either by standard mail or by using the Office of Financial Aid secure upload process. Contact Martha Rowsey (540) 458-8717 to initiate a secure upload.
I/We certify the information submitted on this form is true and accurate. I/We will notify the Financial Aid Office immediately if our circumstances change.
Your university need-based grant eligibility for the 2023-23 academic year is based on your 2021 income. Complete this section if your resources for the 2023-2024 academic year will be significantly different. Enter your actual 2021 income in Column (A) and your updated income in Column (B). This section is complete only if you indicate in Column (B) the source (Option 1 or 2) of your updated income values.
Next to each item, fill in the dollar amount of your family’s average monthly living expenses. If your family shares living expenses with others, indicate only that portion of expenses which your family pays. If an expense occurs other than monthly, please convert into a monthly average. Report only your family’s living expenses. DO NOT REPORT ANY BUSINESS OR RENTAL PROPERTY EXPENSES.
Use the box below to identify the type of one-time gain you received in 2021 and did not receive in 2022.
If you are supporting other family members outside of your household, indicate below the monetary value of the expense and whether it occurred one time or occurs monthly.
