COVID-19 Appeal
Appeal Policy
Your eligibility for financial aid was initially calculated based on the information you provided on the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Using this information all families undergo a consistent
evaluation of the family’s ability to pay for college. The formula assumes that 2018 income is a good indicator
of the family’s financial strength during the student’s 2020-2021 enrollment.
Marietta College understands that the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively effected students and
families' incomes with reductions and job losses. We will be diligently working with ALL students to
determine best options for them during these challenging times. As we make these decisions, we
encourage you to share your family's experience so that we can ensure that you're getting the assistance
that you need to be successful for 2020-2021.
Please remember, granting appeals is based on a one-time special circumstance. It also depends on the
availability of funds and the timeliness of your FAFSA. Submitting this form does not guarantee an adjustment
or increase in your financial aid. In the event that we are not able to offer additional financial aid please
review the alternative financing options and payment plans available to help finance your education.
Information regarding loans is available on our website at http://www.marietta.edu/tuition-financial-aid. The
interest free payment plan is available and information is located at http://www.marietta.edu/payment-options.
Appeals are reviewed within 30 days after receipt of all required and supporting documentation. However,
response times may vary depending on volume of appeals at the time of your request.
If you determine that your 2020 income will be the same or higher than 2018
’s do not complete this form.
Please do not disregard your Marietta College bill due date while waiting for the appeal decision.
