Child and Dependent Care Additional Expense Appeal

You may request an increase to your Cost of Attendance to assist with expenses paid to your child care provider by submitting a Child/Dependent Care Additional Expense Appeal form. If your appeal is approved, you will receive additional loan funds. Due to annual and aggregate loan limits, it is possible that your eligibility could be restricted to an Alternative Loan.

The only type of expenses that can be considered for a Child/Dependent Care Additional Expense Appeal are those that are paid to your child care provider during the academic year which enabled you to attend classes. The child(ren) must be reported in family size on your financial aid application and be living with you.

How to Apply


Fall 2023, Spring 2024, and Summer 2024

Submit a 2023-24 Child/Dependent Care Additional Expense Appeal form and the listed required documentation.
