The Office of Financial Aid may use professional judgment on a case-by-case basis, only to adjust the data used to calculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) or a student’s cost of attendance. The three types of Professional Judgment appeals are:
- Cost of Attendance Budget Increase
- Dependency Override
- Reconsideration of Need
Professional judgment decisions granted to students at other higher education institutions will not automatically be granted at Fort Lewis College.
Each type of appeal has specific requirements and deadlines. Submission of all three appeal types should be mailed, faxed, or emailed to:
Fort Lewis College - Office of Financial Aid
1000 Rim Drive - 101 Miller Student Center
Durango, CO 81301,
Fax: 970-247-7108 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Details about each type of professional judgment appeal considered by the Fort Lewis College Office of Financial Aid Office are outlined below.
