Financial aid awards may be appealed based on special circumstances. If a student wants his/her financial aid to be reviewed, the student and parent(s) (if applicable) should complete a Knox College Special Circumstances Form. Additional information and documentation may be required by the Office of Financial Aid.

The most common special circumstances are:

  • Unusual Medical/Dental Expenses
  • Private Elementary/Secondary School Tuition
  • Educational Debt
  • Reduced Parent/Student Income

Appeals are handled in the order that they are received. Increases in financial aid eligibility that result from adjustments are met on a funds-available basis. Loan funds and a work award totaling maximum eligibility are usually awarded before additional grant aid is considered.
