If you receive a financial aid offer letter that's less than what you need to attend your target college, you may be able to appeal your offer. To do this, most colleges require an appeal letter — a note written to a financial aid administrator asking them to reconsider their decision regarding your aid amount.


Crafting an excellent financial aid appeal is your best chance of getting the money you need to attend your target school. While successful financial aid appeals are far from a sure thing, the worst that can happen is the administrator of financial assistance says no.


Before you write an appeal, you'll need to determine whether your circumstances merit an appeal letter. While financial aid administrators may update certain data elements that can alter financial aid decisions, they won't change your aid amount for just any reason. In reality, only a few situations warrant an appeal.
