Scholarship Reinstatement Appeal

Scholarship Reinstatement Frequently Asked Questions

Why would a student need to submit an appeal?

Scholarship students who do not meet scholarship criteria, such as earn the required GPA or maintain enrollment requirements, for their scholarship may submit an appeal.

Scholarship students are ultimately responsible for checking to determine whether or not they meet the conditions for scholarship renewal, and submit an appeal should they choose to do so.

The Reinstatement Appeal is only for Renewable IUS Scholarships.

When should a student submit an appeal?

The deadline is June 1st every year. Appeals should be submitted after spring grades have posted, but before June 1st. The appeal web form will be available on our website by May 15th.

What is required for an appeal?

  1. An appeal web form. It will be available on the Financial Aid Office's website by May 15th.
  2. A letter that explains the unusual circumstances that prevented you from meeting the renewal criteria.
  3. Supporting documentation. This must be provided in order to receive full consideration of your appeal. Documentation must be uploaded with the web form, and not as a separate submission. Examples of documentation are as follows: doctor’s statement, medical bills, and/or letter of support from an objective third-party.
  4. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your FAFSA data must be on file in the Financial Aid Office by the appeal deadline of June 1st.

Where do I turn in my completed appeal?

The appeal is a web form and must be submitted online from the Financial Aid Office. The appeal and supporting documents must be on file in the financial aid office by June 1st. No exceptions are made to this policy.

How do I find out the results of my appeal?

Students are notified of appeal results via IU e-mail.

What are some valid reasons for appeal approval?

Appeal decisions are based on individual unusual circumstances beyond the student’s control, such as medical issues or death of a family member.

Who makes the decision on appeals?

The Scholarship Appeals Committee will work together to review appeals. Decisions are recommended to the Director of Financial Aid.

What happens if my appeal is denied?

The Financial Aid Office will work closely with you. Completion of the FAFSA is required with your appeal. It is strongly recommended that you submit the FAFSA prior to March 10th to ensure that you are considered for all possible sources of aid.

If I raise my cumulative GPA, can I regain my scholarship?

Students who lose their scholarship will not be automatically renewed, regardless of cumulative GPA. Students who raise their cumulative GPA to meet the scholarship requirements during the summer and/or fall semesters do not regain eligibility for their scholarship immediately. At the conclusion of the spring semester, students who have raised their cumulative GPA to the required level should fill out a reinstatement appeal form no later than June 1st. Appeals will be reviewed accordingly and scholarship reinstatements will be processed if eligibility remains.

If I lost my scholarship in a prior year, how can I be reconsidered for scholarship funding?

Students that did not appeal last year, or did appeal and were denied, can submit an appeal this year. The Scholarship Appeals Committee will review the student cumulative GPA for improvement and any unusual circumstances.
