Professional Judgement

Section 479A of the Higher Education Amendments of 1992 authorized the financial aid administrator to exercise Professional Judgment (PJ) on a case-by-case basis. Professional judgment is a discretionary action on the part of the financial aid office to address special or unusual circumstances that affect a student’s/parent’s ability to pay for educational expenses. Using judgment, the aid administrator may adjust the expected family contribution (EFC) and thereby make education more affordable.   

The following are examples of conditions/reasons for which a student may request an adjustment to their EFC.  

  • Death of a parent or the independent student’s spouse.  
  • Loss of employment by student/spouse/parent (for at least 3 months).  
  • Loss of earnings due to disability.  
  • Loss of untaxed income and benefits.  
  • One-time income (ex. Back year social security payments).  

Other extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If a student/parent would like to apply for professional judgment consideration, it is necessary to write a letter requesting a review of the current financial situation. This letter should explain in detail the current financial situation and why an adjustment to the EFC is warranted. The financial aid administrator will review all letters of request on a case-by-case basis. If the financial aid administrator decides that changes to any data elements on the FAFSA are warranted, the financial aid administrator will make changes to the FAFSA electronically and send it to the Federal Processor. Once the correction is made by the U. S. Department of Education, the Division of Student Financial Assistance will notify you by mail of the change in your expected family contribution and new award amount(s). You will also be notified if there is no change to your EFC for financial aid awards.   

Any future student or governmental official who has a complaint concerning Summit Salon Academy Portland’s management of Title IV, HEA programs may seek resolution by contacting the Director. The Director will receive the complaint and assist the future student in resolving the complaint.
