If you or a member of your household has experienced a significant change in income as a result of the hurricane you may qualify for need based financial aid (even if you have not qualified for need-based financial aid in the past). Although there is no specific “aid” designated to victims of this disaster, if you already receive financial aid, you may be eligible for additional assistance if your current award is less than the maximum amount allowed.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online, if you have not already done so. This will help speed up your review process. Once this is completed, please contact our office by calling 985-448-4048 to discuss the process for qualifying for “an unusual circumstance adjustment to your financial aid package.”
