To Whom It May Concern:

My name is {Student Name} and I'm writing to appeal your decision to withdraw my financial aid at {School Name}. I do not contest the fact that my academic performance has fallen below your standards, but there were extenuating circumstances caused by hardship that I hope you will take into account.

On {date}, {brief description of hardship, such as a medical emergency, illness, family issue, or financial problem}. This hardship was unforeseen and severe, and is the reason I was unable to devote my full time and attention to my studies.

If you look at my attached transcript, you will see that I have always worked hard to achieve good grades. Before {term}, my GPA had never dipped below {GPA}. This drop in performance is a temporary problem brought on by outside circumstances. If I am granted leniency, I am confident that I can get my grades back to a place that accurately reflects my passion and effort in my studies.

Thank you for considering my appeal. I appreciate any opportunity you can offer that will allow me to continue my education.

Thank you,

{Sender Name}
