Due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19, my family’s income has changed. Can I appeal my financial aid eligibility for the 2020-2021 academic year to receive more funds?

Kent State University understands that your family may have experienced changes to your financial circumstances related to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. If your family’s financial circumstances have changed as a result of Coronavirus/COVID-19 (e.g. loss of income, death of parent or spouse), you have the option to complete the Special Circumstance Application. Through the special circumstance process, we can review the information previously submitted on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if it is no longer an accurate representation of your family’s current financial situation.
