We recently notified students if they are not meeting SAP standards.
If you were one of these students and the disruption to the spring semester caused by the COVID pandemic caused you to withdraw, drop classes, or not perform at your best, our office wants to encourage you to appeal. Committees will be taking COVID related issues into heavy consideration and our office recommends that you appeal your status if you were impacted. SAP appeals require several pieces of information, including the extenuating circumstance that caused your current situation. Circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic (including, but not limited to, the illness of a student or family member, compliance with a quarantine period, or a general disruption resulting from such an outbreak) will be considered such an exceptional circumstance. Supporting documentation from a third-party is required and can include documents such as doctor’s notes.
Please review our policy for more information on SAP and how to submit an appeal.
From June 23rd - June 30th the CARES attestation will be unavailable due to end of fiscal year processing. The attestation will be reactivated on July 1st.
You may be eligible for CARES funding. Find out more on Appalachian's CARES resource page.
The Office of Student Financial Aid is pleased to announce that electronic forms are now available for 2020-2021!
If you were selected for verification, you no longer need to print, sign, and turn in hard copies of your documentation. With the new StudentForms platform, you will be able to complete most requirements online and sign electronically. We feel very excited about this transition due to the increase in data security and our processing speed. You can find additional information as well as tutorials by going here.
Please note, if you have been selected for verification for 2019-2020, you will complete the process using our current method. Information on 2019-2020 verification can be found here.
