Special Circumstances

If a significant change occurs to your (or your parent's) personal, family, or economic circumstances after you submit your FAFSA, adjustments can often be made (in accordance with federal state and UCM guidelines) to the types and/or amounts of financial aid you've been offered. Such circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • loss of employment (yours or your parents)
  • death of a family member
  • divorce or separation (you or your parents)
  • loss of untaxed income and benefits (you or your parents)
  • retirement
  • dependency override

To report a change in circumstances, complete and submit the Request for Recalculation of Financial Aid Eligibility to the UCM Office of Student Financial Services, after June 1 prior to the school year for which the adjustments will be effective.
