Change in Financial Situation After the FAFSA

If you experience a change in resources, income, or special circumstances not addressed on the original FAFSA, you may submit a Student and/or Parent Request for Review form. 

The Fall 2022 - Spring 2023 Student and Parent Request for Review Form is now available.

Special circumstances that may be considered

Changes that may justify a review include, but are not limited to:

  • Loss of a job or a substantial reduction in earnings or other income
  • Loss or reduction of child support or spousal support
  • Death, divorce, or separation from a spouse after submitting the FAFSA
  • Income received last year that you will not receive in the current or upcoming year
  • Loss due to recent natural disasters (e.g., earthquake, flood, fire) not covered by insurance

How to Submit a "Request for Review"

Contact the Student Financial Center to be counseled on the Request for Review process and to have a "Task" added in my.SDSU that will enable you to upload the form.  

Note: processing time is 8-10 weeks.
