Academic progress appeal

Change in income appeal
If you’ve faced financial hardship since you filed your FAFSA, you or your parents may be able to submit a change in income appeal. Note that filing an appeal will not necessarily result in an increase in aid. Contact Student Central to discuss your appeal options or to request a change of income appeal form.
If you’re a degree-seeking student at IU Bloomington and would like to receive aid while enrolled at another IU campus, you’ll need to file a consortium appeal.
