Request for Review

Investing in a University of Miami education is one of the most important decisions that you are going to make as a family. UM provides generous financial assistance that takes into consideration both academic merit and financial need. Given the variety and complexity of scholarship programs and packaging policies at many of UM’s peer institutions, the University will not match awards from other institutions. However, if your family has experienced a change in your financial situation since filing the CSS Profile and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you may submit a request for additional review to the Enrollment Management Review Committee. Only appeals based on new information will be processed.

Request for Review forms for 2019-2020 will not be available until January 2019 and will require the submission of completed 2017 and 2018 tax forms and W-2s. 

To submit a Request for Review, please complete the form below and attach all supporting documentation. Only completed forms with all required documentation will be reviewed.

Required documentation for 2018-2019: Appeals for 2018-2019 will not be reviewed until all 2017 completed taxes and W-2s can be submitted with the appeal.
