   FAFSA Error Financial Aid Appeal Letter

Dear {college financial aid office}:

I am writing to request a review of my financial aid package. It seems that my Expected Family Contribution was incorrectly inflated.

My research indicates that the EFC calculation is off due to {IRA rollover/mistaken inclusion of retirement accounts/etc.}. Or perhaps there is some other issue your staff can identify. I’m confident that the EFC of {amount} cannot be correct based on {income/assets/other factors}

Additionally, the amount of tuition and room and board varies from the Net Price Calculator’s prediction of {amount}.

Please let me know the results of your review at your earliest convenience. {College Name} is my top-choice school.
