I need more funds to cover living expenses. What can I do?

Remaining Loan Eligibility: Students who have remaining loan eligibility and want to receive additional funds should submit requests and any other required documentation. We recommend submitting requests as soon as possible so that Financial Aid can complete the process prior to the end of the term. Students can consult their Netpartner accounts to determine if they have remaining eligibility or contact the Financial Aid Office (swfinaid@columbia.edu). Budget appeals are not necessary if a student’s remaining eligibility would cover their expenses.

Budget Appeals: Students who have incurred additional medical, housing, or transportation expenses related to COVID-19 should contact the Financial Aid office to find out if they can be considered for the purpose of a budget appeal to increase a student’s loan eligibility.
