Special Circumstances

Financial aid policies and procedures are established to ensure equitable treatment for all students qualified to receive assistance. Because of individual circumstances, a particular student may feel a professional judgment of policies and procedures is warranted.

Professional Judgment (PJ) decisions are made by the UM-Dearborn’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships (OFAS) on a case-by-case basis as the result of examining documentation of a particular student’s unique circumstances.

A PJ will only be exercised after all required documentation has been submitted and any/all conflicting/consistent information has been resolved.

Have your circumstances changed?

Call us at 313-593-5300, email us at [email protected], or schedule an appointment with a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss your options. We will advise you on your options and next steps on providing the proper documentation.
