   Financial Aid Appeal Letter Medical Expenses

Dear {college financial aid office}:

In light of new and significant medical expenses, I’m writing to ask for an appeal of my financial aid package. I very much wish to attend {College Name}, but I can only do so if my net price is {amount}.

My family’s medical expenses are abnormally high. Due to {condition/diagnosis} of {family member}, costs average {monthly amount} in the form of {high insurance premiums/excessive co-pays and deductibles/prescriptions/durable medical equipment}.

I have attached documentation of the above, and my parents would be happy to talk with you to provide more context. They can be reached at {phone number}.

Thank you for considering these unusual circumstances. I look forward to your professional judgment and a revised financial aid package.
