Please complete this form, using the text box to document your reasons for requesting reconsideration of aid eligibility, and submit the additional documentation requested to the Office of Financial Aid.
Please note that appeals will not be processed until all requested documentation has been received, and students have exhausted all resources available to them, including loans included in their financial aid offer. In most cases this will include tax returns and W2(s), if applicable, for the student and parent(s). Depending on the reason for your appeal, the Office of Financial Aid may request additional supporting documentation.
All appeal documentation should be sent as PDF attachments to email@example.com, or by fax to (315) 859-4962. Please remember to include the student's name with all documentation.
If you haven't already, please take a moment to review Hamilton's Financial Aid Appeal page for more information on the types of circumstances typically considered during the appeal process.
Please note:We will only consider losses that have already occurred and cannot project lost income forward.
Please note:For divorced/separated families, we will continue to expect that both parents will contribute to the student's college education costs. For more information, please refer to Hamilton's website https://www.hamilton.edu/admission/finaid/policies/divorced-or-separated-family-situation
Please note:We are unable to consider appeals based on circumstances that include but are not limited to:
