Changes to a Financial Aid Offer

Quinnipiac reserves the right to change, update or modify a student’s offer if circumstances warrant. We make every attempt to provide the most accurate financial aid commitment to you; however, the following factors often result in a modified financial aid offer:

  • Inaccurate information reported on the FAFSA
  • Error in family size or the number of children attending college
  • Corrections/updates due to verification of information
  • Change in housing status (i.e., on-campus to living at home with parents)
  • Change in enrollment status (i.e., full time to part time)
  • Change in major, satisfactory academic progress deficiencies, or scholarship ineligibility
  • Large amounts of outside aid received (i.e., Tuition Exchange benefits, outside scholarships)
  • Aid offered/received after initial offer (scholarships, state grants, athletic aid, etc.)

This list is not meant to be all-inclusive, but rather to highlight some common items that might result in a revised financial aid offer.

Verification Document Access in Self-Service

Verification is the process the University uses to confirm the data reported on your FAFSA application is accurate. The financial aid office will notify students who are selected for the verification process and a list of the required documents will appear in the Self-Service Portal.

Requested documentation may include but is not limited to tax returns, wage statements, or confirmation of household members. The document list will provide the necessary links to complete the forms required to finalize the verification process.

Please be sure to provide us with the most accurate information as quickly as possible to avoid untimely adjustments to your financial aid offer. If verification remains incomplete at the time bills are due, you may be assessed late fees.
