Penn College recognizes that some students and their families have experienced a substantial loss of income and/or have unexpected expenses in 2021 or 2022. These financial hardships can threaten students’ abilities to start, or to continue, pursuing their academic goals.
If you have completed a 2022-23 FAFSA and previously explored all potential sources of funding, you can begin a conversation with the Financial Aid Office about your or your family’s financial hardship. To begin this conversation, submit this notification by answering the questions below and explaining your circumstances.
Please understand that funds for financial hardship circumstances are limited and are considered temporary rather than continual assistance. A Penn College committee will carefully review all submissions. The Financial Aid Office typically will require additional information and documentation from you and/or your spouse or parent. Note that financial hardships for reduced income in 2022 will not be reviewed before July 1, 2022.
The Financial Aid Office will communicate with you via your Penn College Student email account, so be sure to check it regularly.
