The SVSU Financial Aid Staff is here to assist you and your parents if you have special circumstances that may affect your eligibility for financial aid or ability to apply. Special circumstances may encompass involuntary changes in income or employment, unusual dental or medical expenses paid not covered by insurance, divorce, separation or death, or other circumstances that have changed the total income level of the family.
You may be eligible for additional financial assistance if these circumstances apply. We suggest downloading an Unusual Circumstance/Review of Assistance Form if circumstances have changed significantly. Complete the form in full, and submit it to the SVSU Financial Aid Office, along with the required supporting documentation, as listed on the form. The review process may take four to six weeks.
