Professional Judgement (PJ)

When special and involuntary circumstances affect your federal financial aid resources, there may be an option available for income adjustments due to special circumstances. Examples may include loss of job, death of a parent/spouse, or excessive medical expenses.

**Please note, the submission of documents does not guarantee that your request will be approved or that you will be eligible for additional aid. Please allow up to 3 weeks for review after all required documentation has been submitted.

Use the PJ Advisor portal to expedite the financial aid professional judgement process. PJ Advisor is an
accessible, intuitive tool that will guide you through the process to request a professional judgement/appeal.

Please note the deadline for submitting a PJ is July 1st of each academic year.
