Considering Unusual Circumstances for Financial Aid Eligibility
The FAFSA application collects information and assumes that the student’s/parent’s financial strength stays about the same from year to year. When determining eligibility for federal aid, the FAFSA is the primary method of determining EFC, Expected Family Contribution.
If you have any of the above circumstance, please use the Professional Judgment form to see if you are eligible for a change in your financial aid award. You may turn the form into the Financial Aid Office at anytime during the year. If you have any questions, please contact your De Anza Financial Aid Processor.
