Submitting an appeal does not guarantee approval to reinstate eligibility to receive federal financial aid.  The committee will make a final decision, either approving or denying your appeal.  You will be informed of their decision by letter and email to your VCSU email account.  If the appeal is not successful, students may consider an alternative/private loan to fund their cost of education until they meet the minimum SAP standards.  Students are responsible for paying university charges incurred and will not be eligible for federal financial aid unless this appeal is approved.
