Appeals

If you believe that, due to your family's financial situation or other special circumstances, LMU Financial Aid should reevaluate your financial aid award, you may file a financial aid award appeal. Before submitting an award appeal, please review the information below, regarding types of appeals, the potential outcomes, and the appeal process and timelines. 

A financial aid award appeal is a formal request to LMU Financial Aid to reconsider or reevaluate your and/ or your family’s financial concerns or other special circumstances that may have an impact on your financial aid award. If you believe that you or your family's circumstances may allow you to submit an appeal, please access and review the following appeal qualification information within this section

Potential Appeal Outcomes

Your Financial Aid Award will include the maximum federal, state, and institutional aid for which you are eligible. We cannot guarantee that the submission of an appeal will result in an increase to your aid award. Even if approved, an appeal may result only in revisions to federal or state aid programs.

Appeals Not Processed by LMU Financial Aid

Please note that appeals related to the Cal Grant are not processed by the Financial Aid Office and must be addressed to the California Student Aid Commission. Please visit the Cal Grant Appeals website for more information.
