2019 taxes filed and it's significantly lower than 2018, will this help me get an increase in grants/scholarships?


I need to negotiate my grants/scholarships before the May 1st deadline. My parents have completed their 2019 taxes and it's significantly lower than 2018, can I submit this to my chosen college for an increase in grants.

it definitely could. you should get in touch with your college's financial aid office and ask them to reconsider your aid offer based on new information. they should ask for copies of your parents' 2019 tax returns, which you can send them, and they should be able to give you a new offer.

do it soon though, sometimes it can take a week or more for them to do that calculation, so i'd try to email them immediately and see if you can call them when the work week starts tomorrow
