COVID-19 Appeal Information:
Marietta College understands that the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively effected students and families' incomes with reductions and job losses. We will be diligently working with ALL students to determine best options for them during these challenging times. As we make these decisions, we encourage you to share your family's experience so that we can ensure that you're getting the assistance that you need to be successful for 2020-2021.
The Office of Student Financial Services is aware that a family's financial circumstances may change, and those changes may affect you and your family’s ability to contribute toward your education. Our office can help address this issue and assist families who have experienced a significant change in income and/or resources.
The following circumstances can be considered:
- Reduction of income or benefits in 2020.
- Extraordinary medical or dental expenses in 2018.
- Death of a parent or spouse whose information is on the FAFSA form.
- Divorce or separation after filing the 2020-2021 FAFSA form.
- Natural Disaster expenses not covered by Insurance
The Special Circumstances Form details what type of supporting documentation you are required to submit with the form to verify the change in circumstance.
Each family's situation is unique and is reviewed on a case by case basis. Submission of an appeal does not guarantee approval, and families should make alternative payment arrangements while waiting for the outcome of an appeal. Please Note: Any changes to your financial aid awards will be contingent on the type of funds available, eligibility policies, and regulations.
