Parent Contribution Appeal

Financial circumstances change, and those changes may affect your family's ability to contribute to your education. We are here to help. 

If your parents' current income is substantially less than what you reported on the FAFSA or California Dream Act Application, or their income is substantially reduced by expenses due to certain extenuating circumstances, you can consider requesting a Parent Contribution Appeal. We will review your appeal and make adjustments, as appropriate, based on their current financial situation.
