Appeal for Special Circumstances

Appeal for Special Circumstances

Families may request an additional review of their FAFSA information if there are exceptional circumstances that have impacted your family’s ability to pay for your college education. This could include:

  • Recent unemployment
  • Lower earnings due to a job change
  • Unusual medical expenses
  • End of child support or benefits

These circumstances must be conditions over which your family has no control. Please contact the Berea College Student Financial Aid Office via email at if you believe any of these circumstances have affected your family’s ability to pay for college.
