   FAFSA EFC Financial Aid Appeal Letter

Dear {college financial aid office}:

I am so excited to have been admitted to {College Name}.

Unfortunately, the Expected Family Contribution generated by the FASFA is not an accurate representation of my family’s current financial situation. The EFC of {number} was based on my parent’s {year} taxes. But since then, {job loss/death in family/medical expenses/other development}.

I’m writing to ask that you please review my financial aid package in light of these developments. Without a significant adjustment of {quantity}, I will not be able to attend {College Name}.

I have attached {pay stubs/unemployment records/death certificate/medical bill printout/etc.}. Please let me know if there is any other documentation or context I can provide to assist in your decision.

Thank you for your consideration. {College Name} is my dream school.
