If you have had a significant reduction in income, that was not captured on your FAFSA, you may contact our office about the Special Conditions Appeal process. In some cases, the Special Conditions Appeal may be used by undergraduate students to update the FAFSA with new information that results in eligibility for need based aid. You may find more about the appeal process and requesting a preliminary review here: https://financialaid.oregonstate.edu/request-changes-0
***A note for federal student loan borrowers who are in repayment *** The administrative forbearance due to COVID-19 and temporary 0% interest rate on loans will expire on December 31, 2020. Lawmakers are currently working on another coronavirus-related stimulus bill and could include provisions on student loans. Until then on Jan. 1st borrowers will resume repayment if not enrolled at least half-time (Undergraduate is 6 credits and Graduate is 5 credits). If a borrower is experiencing a financial hardship we encourage you to reach out to your loan servicer. The Office of Financial Aid will do our best to keep you updated if the situation changes.
