Circumstances may require that a student's aid package be revised in the following cases:
Change in enrollment
Students are awarded financial aid based on estimates of enrollment. Awards are later adjusted based on actual enrollment.
Withdrawal from school
Students contemplating withdrawing from classes should make an appointment to see a financial aid counselor. The current semester's aid as well as future aid may be jeopardized.
Receipt of other financial aid
This includes aid not awarded through the Office of Financial Aid, including institutional, state and private donor scholarships, tuition remission, graduate assistantships, and other aid that we become aware of after the student has been awarded.
Change in residency status
Students who are granted in-state residency after they receive an award based on out-of-state residence will receive a budget adjustment, which reflects the in-state charges for tuition and fees. This may require an adjustment to aid awarded and/or received. In such cases, funds may be returned to the appropriate financial aid programs to prevent an over award.
Federal verification process
Students who are selected for verification will need to submit federal tax return transcripts (or import their tax information into the FAFSA), a verification worksheet, and other documentation to the UB Office of Financial Aid. This information may require changes be made to the original FAFSA information, resulting in changes in eligibility.
