NASFAA Mention: How to Ask for More Financial Aid for College (and Hopefully Get It)

"Any financial aid is something to be grateful for — but you can be grateful and still ask for more. If you’ve done the math and your financial aid isn’t enough to cover college costs, you might consider doing just that," Student Loan Hero reports.

"But what if you don’t know how to ask for more financial aid? Although it isn’t guaranteed you’ll get more money, filing an appeal is a straightforward process that’s worth a shot, particularly if the coronavirus pandemic or something else has affected your family finances.

According to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, nearly 60% of colleges experienced a 'somewhat or great' uptick in requests for more financial aid from March through September of 2020, a period coinciding with the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic."
