Great question, Lorelei. We'll pose that to Sherrell!

Yes, Lorelei. The special condition application that Sherrell is referring to now. Also, you can ask your financial aid counselor for an audit of your FAFSA. Again, here's how to reach out to your financial aid counselor for an audit: https://www.kean.edu/offices/financial-aid/financial-aid-staff
