Right to Appeal

Right to Appeal Suspension of Financial Aid

A student whose aid is suspended may request reinstatement through the Financial Aid Appeals Committee. The student must effectively demonstrate that the failure to meet SAP was due to an unusual or extenuating circumstance, and explain what has changed. Download the Financial Aid Appeal Packet for the directions and information regarding appeals.

Financial Aid Appeals Committee

The committee meets throughout each semester to review SAP appeals.  Please submit completed appeals to the Financial Aid Office.

Scheduled Meetings:

Friday, August 6, 2021 at 1 pm- Appeals received by 4:30 pm Thursday, August 5, 2021

Tuesday, August 17, 2021 at 1 pm- Appeals received by 5:00 pm Monday, August 16, 2021

Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at 2 pm- Appeals received by 5:00 pm Tuesday, August 24, 2021


When financial aid is suspended, both the cumulative GPA and completion rate must be met in subsequent semesters of at least six credits before reinstatement of aid is possible.

Students who successfully complete a minimum of six credits at LSSU while not receiving financial aid must contact the Financial Aid Office to request a review for reinstatement.

If completion of “I” grades or other record changes warrant a reinstatement, a copy of the transcript must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office with a written request for a review.
