Cost ofAttendanceAppeal FAFSAIncomeAppeals FAFSAON-TIMEAppeal SatisfactoryAcademic Progress (SAP) Appeal What is Cost of Attendance?The cost of attendance (COA) is not the bill that you may get from your college; it is the total estimated amount it will cost you to go to college each year. The COA includes direct costs like tuition and fees and on-campus room and board if you are living on-campus. You will see those costs reflected on your bill. Indirect expenses may vary for each student, but there is an allowance provided by the state of Colorado for off-campus housing and food allowance, books, supplies, transportation, loan fees, and, if applicable, dependent care. It can also include other expenses like an allowance for the rental or purchase of a personal computer, costs related to a disability, or costs for eligible study-abroad programs. You can view your COA for your program here.Cost of Attendance Appeal ProcessYou may request an increase to your cost of attendance (COA) if certain indirect costs exceed the allowance provided by the state of Colorado or if certain indirect costs are not already reflected on your COA. You will need to submit the Cost of Attendance Appeal Form and a written statement along with supporting documentation of your indirect costs you wish our office to review to Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to 303.964.5449.一道本不卡免费高清Cost of attendance appeals are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and submission of an appeal does not guarantee that a change will be made to a student’s cost of attendance budget.

What is a FAFSA Income Appeal?The purpose of a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Income Appeal is to report changes not reflected on a student’s current FAFSA form. Our appeals committee may elect to adjust the data reported on the FAFSA to re-calculate the FAFSA EFC (expected family contribution) index number. At Regis University, our appeals committee reviews all appeals submitted on a case by case basis, and utilizing our professional judgment, we determine if any changes should be made.Submitting an appeal does not guarantee that we will make changes to the FAFSA and any changes made do not guarantee that a student will qualify for additional aid. If changes are made which adjust the EFC, we will review our awarding policy and determine if the new EFC number generates additional aid eligibility. Federal regulations prohibit our office from modifying the formula or the tables used in the FAFSA EFC calculation. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Education has determined that “unreasonable” judgments include the reduction of EFCs based on costs such as vacation expenses, tithing expenses, and standard living expenses: housing, utilities, car payments, credit card expenses, and the like.You must be admitted to Regis University and a current FAFSA must be on file in our office prior to submitting an appeal.FAFSA Income Appeal ProcessWe start by verifying your original FAFSA information before reviewing an appeal.
