Financial Aid Appeal Process

Columbia University, School of Nursing recognizes that a student’s total expenses for the academic year may exceed the School of Nursing standard cost of attendance. The appeal form allows the Office of Financial Aid to examine selected education related expenses and evaluate a student's option for additional loan funding.

You will need to complete the Budget Appeal Form with the required documentation to The Office of Financial Aid. The appeal may take 7 - 10 business days to process. Decisions are based upon your provided documentation and are directed by administrative parameters previously established by Columbia University School of Nursing. All decisions are final. Once a decision is made on a student's appeal request, an email will be sent to the student.
