Writing an Appeal Letter

If your financial aid award does not give you enough money to cover your expenses for the year, you can consider writing an appeal letter to your financial aid office. This letter should be in the form of a professional business letter, and it should clearly explain why you cannot afford to pay the amount they expect you to contribute.
