Community College of Denver understands that special circumstances occur which may affect a student’s financial aid eligibility. This is especially true with the events of the past year. In our commitment to awarding all financial aid-seeking students with the most accurate award possible, we offer a process called, professional judgment.
For the 2021-2022 aid year a student’s financial aid application requests 2019 tax and income information. Given this information is from two years prior, it’s possible the FAFSA doesn’t accurately reflect a student and their family’s current financial situation. A student and their family have the option to request a professional judgment to have their account reviewed and possibly updated.
Please note, a professional judgment may not be beneficial for all students. Some students are initially offered the best possible award, so a professional judgment wouldn’t create any added benefit.
