Financial Aid Professional Judgement

Have you lost your job or had a reduction of hours as a result of COVID-19? The Office of Student Financial Aid is here to help! If you have completed your FAFSA, please submit one of our Special Circumstance Forms by following the links below:

I am attending Spring 2020

I will be attending Summer 2020

I will be attending Fall 2020

Please submit your request via your student email to or by fax at 256-233-8178.

It is important to submit the form with all required documentation together at one time or your request will be delayed. Requests are reviewed individually and you will be notified via your Athens State email when that review is complete.

If you need further assistance with your financial aid for any semester, please make an appointment.


Please note: Students attending Spring and Summer 2020 will have their reviews prioritized over students beginning in Fall 2020 due to time constraint issues.
