Temple University strives to offer our families the best financial aid offers possible within the boundaries of federal, state, and university funding. However, we understand the FAFSA does not always capture the most accurate financial snapshot of your household, and that certain circumstances may present your family with unique financial challenges. If your family has experienced a significant change of financial circumstances, you may be able to request a Family Contribution Appeal to have your federal financial aid eligibility reevaluated. Requesting an appeal does not guarantee an adjustment can be made to the financial aid offer, and the review process will require our office to request additional documentation.
Appeals for 2023-2024 are now open. Students can access the request from the SFS Dashboard (see below for instructions).
