Financial Aid Appeals Process
You have the right to appeal the FINANCIAL AID SUSPENSION determination of the Financial Aid Office if you feel that extenuating circumstances prevented you from meeting the specific requirements for satisfactory progress. If you decide to appeal this decision you must follow the process as outlined below.
Your appeal must be in writing. Please use the Request for Appeal form.
It must specifically address the extenuating circumstances.
You must provide documentation of your extenuating circumstances. Appeals submitted without documentation will not be considered.
It must be filed with the Financial Aid Office by the due date published in the FINANCIAL AID SUSPENSION notification letter. Please note, if you plan to return to Southwest Georgia Technical College at a later time, you must still meet the appeals deadline set in the letter.
You are responsible for payment of tuition and fees until the decision of the Committee is made.
No appeals will be considered after the Appeals Committee meets for the semester.
You may fax your appeal and documentation to our office at (229)227-2727.
