Unusual Circumstances

Although the process of determining a student's eligibility for federal student aid is standardized, there is some flexibility.

If you or your family has unusual circumstances (such as loss of employment) that might affect your need for student financial aid, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and then consult with the East Central College Office of Financial Aid. Conditions that can be taken into consideration are:

  1. Loss of employment
  2. Change in employment
  3. Loss of benefits
  4. Unusually high medical or dental expenses not covered by insurance
  5. Elementary or secondary school tuition
  6. Separation/Divorce
