7 My Financial Aid Situation Has Changed

If your financial situation has changed since the prior tax year, or if you have other unique circumstances that the EFC formula does not consider, you may request that Metropolitan State re-evaluate your financial aid. If you provide documentation of your special circumstances to the Financial Aid Office, a financial aid officer may make adjustments to the data you submitted on the FAFSA. In some cases, adjusting data will increase your financial aid.
