Financial Aid Appeals Related to COVID-19

MD students who receive need-based financial aid may have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to COVID-19. We accept appeals anytime during the academic year, and the form HERE may be utilized for that purpose. Please keep in mind that changes in income that occur in 2020 will not be considered until 2020 federal taxes are filed, per our usual policy.
