Financial Aid SAP Appeal Committee Procedures

The members of the SAP Appeals Committee convene at the beginning of each semester (including summer sessions) to review financial aid appeals.

Procedures exercised by the Committee are as follows:

  • Upon receipt of appeals and supporting documentation, academic transcripts are reviewed by the Appeals committee.
  • Appeal results are recorded in the student’s electronic file in AppXtender and an electronic notification of appeal decision are sent to the students.
  • Appeals granted for the Academic Year will receive eligible funding for the year.
  • Appeals granted for one-term only will receive eligible funding for the term in which they are enrolled in. At the end of the semester, grades will be reviewed by the SAP Appeals committee to determine eligibility for subsequent term(s). Students will be notified within 15 days of the submission of their appeal.
  • Students are required to submit an appeal electronically via the financial aid website. They can upload supported documents or scan them to sapforms@bergen.edu
