Please submit signed/completed forms to the Office of Student Finance.
Note: MS4s who wish to submit a request to increase their cost of attendance to include expenses associated with away rotations and/or residency interviews, please contact the Office of Student Finance.
Students who wish to appeal their financial aid award package due to unusual circumstances or a significant change in income may submit this form along with supporting documents as outlined in the instructions. If you do not have a significant change in income but wish to be considered for the North Shore-LIJ Health loan only, you may also submit this form, completing Section 3.
Awards granted based on appeal are one-time awards and not renewable. An appeal must be submitted each year for reconsideration by the deadline.
The deadline to submit an appeal request for the upcoming aid year is August 15th. All requests will be formally reviewed after the deadline and determinations will be made by September 30th, unless otherwise notified.
Submitting a financial aid appeal does not guarantee an increase in your institutional aid award. Appeals are awarded based upon completed applications received and availability of funding.
Students who borrow a private student loan must submit this form to their lender. The lender will provide it to you as part of the application process. Students are strongly encouraged to consider federal loans first and understand federal versus private loans.
To complete the form, you will need your cost of attendance and your financial aid award information:
- Refer to the cost of attendance chart that corresponds to your MS level
- Log in to the Hofstra portal to view your financial aid awards
