Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation

If you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is
reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or
otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your
financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the
application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit
your FAFSA form, then contact the school you plan to attend to discuss how your
current financial situation has changed. Note that the school’s decision is final and
cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education.

FAFSA - BRCC's School Code is 037303
