If your family/individual financial circumstances change dramatically during an academic year it is possible that your financial aid could also change. 如果你觉得你有重要的理由要求审查你的财务数据, you may do so. Each review situation is handled on an individual basis and not all requests result in a change of financial aid.

所有的学院都有审查的权利,但并不是所有的学院都会以同样的方式进行审查. Making requests for another child at another institution may not result in the same changes at both schools. We will do our best to help.
