Special Circumstances

FAFSA and TASFA utilizes income and statuses from the last year of taxes filed before the opening of the FAFSA. If a family has experienced negative financial impacts more recently, they may be eligible to submit a special circumstances form.

A special circumstances form will reevaluate the student’s financial situation and may reduce the SAI value. Special circumstance forms are reviewed by UNT Financial Aid. Follow the link below to determine eligibility and access the form.


If completed, upload the form to UNT Financial Aid with all supporting documentation at the following link: https://financialaid.unt.edu/upload.
