Unemployed Due to Covid-19

What if my parents and/or my income has been affected by unemployment due to Covid-19?

Our financial aid counselor may have the ability to adjust financial aid eligibility based on your special circumstances, including for recently unemployed individuals who may not know that their changed circumstances could make them eligible for Federal Pell Grants and other need-based student aid. You may use documentation of unemployment—including, but not limited to, receipt of unemployment benefits—to aid in assisting our counselors with reducing or adjusting income earned from work for a student and/or parent as well as make corresponding adjustments to Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) on the FAFSA application.

Complete the following steps:

  1. Make a copy of your proof of unemployment
  2. Book an appointment with a financial aid counselor ((214) 333-5363 or finaid@dbu.edu)
  3. Complete the Change in Circumstances process to request the Office of Financial Aid to consider unique family circumstances not reflected on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
