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 may submit this form to increase, decrease, or cancel their student loans or replace all or part of their expected student contribution (EFC) with federal student loan funds.

Loan Adjustment Request

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 the availability of funding.
