Appealing Your Financial Aid Award

Drew University recognizes that the financial aid application process does not always capture the true ability of a family to pay for a college education. Accordingly, we offer students the opportunity to appeal their initial offer of financial assistance. To appeal, please complete the 2016-2017 Financial Aid Award Appeal Application below. This form, along with all relevant documentation, should be submitted to the Office of Financial Assistance at finaid@drew.edu or via FAX to 973-408-3188.

The Financial Aid Appeals Committee carefully reviews each submission. Although we cannot always meet parent and student expectations, we will do our best to make Drew University an affordable option.

If you have any questions about the appeal process, please contact the Office of Financial Assistance at finaid@drew.edu or 973-408-3112.

2016-2017 Financial Aid Award Appeal Application

If you are appealing your financial aid award as a result of a decrease in business income, please complete the 2016-17 Business and Farm Supplement.

If you are appealing your financial aid award and your parents are divorced or separated, please complete the 2016-17 Noncustodial Parent Statement.

Appeals for increased merit awards will be heard by the Scholarship Committee. If you wish to appeal your merit scholarship, please check “Other” on the Appeal Application and provide a detailed explanation of why you should be considered for an additional merit award.
