Forms: Income Appeals / BUDGET INCREASES 

Carefully read the instructions on all forms before completing and submitting them to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. Your request will be delayed if you fail to follow instructions or submit incomplete forms.

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

Student and Parent Requests for Review Forms are to address special circumstances or changes from your original Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA Dream Act Application, including, but not limited to: 

  • Loss of job or significant reduction of income
  • Death, divorce, or separation after you submitted your FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application
  • One time income that will not be received again
  • Loss due to natural disaster not covered by insurance

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.
