Financial Appeal Information and Form

*Currently, the good-standing balance threshold has been increased to $5,000 due to COVID-19.  The threshold applies to students that were currently enrolled during the Spring 2020 semester.  Students approved will see an indicator of C19 on their student account.  More information to come about the 2020-2021 academic year.

Currently enrolled students are eligible to file a financial appeal with the Student Financial Services office if their outstanding balance is over $1,000 (for U.S students) or over $1 (for International students) by the appeal deadline.  The deadline for filing a financial appeal is October 2, 2020.


The appeal process is initiated by filling out the Financial Appeals Form.  It can be used to request additional time to work with the Financial Aid Office and/or other sources of funding needed to pay off the outstanding balance on the student's account before selecting courses and enrolling for the next semester only.  Once the form has been submitted by the deadline, it will be reviewed before a decision can be made to approve or decline it.  There is no guarantee that your request will be approved.  If the appeal is approved, the student must adhere to the payment plan outlined on the financial appeal form.  If the student is unable to clear all of the balance as agreed, he/she will not be allowed to register for future semesters.

You may submit the completed and signed form at Student Financial Services, College Hall B-04 or scan and email it to student.accounts@gallaudet.edu.
