Subject: [ACADEMIC APPEAL SAMPLE LETTER (Difficulty Completing Courses)]
Dear Office of Student Financial Assistance:
I am appealing for the deferment of my funding and loan because it seems that I can’t complete two courses. For your information, I want to tell you that I started to take classes in Fall Semester after two years of discontinuity of my studies. During this period, I was totally cut off from school. I soon realized that continuity of education and school join after break of two years is not an easy task. It was much more difficult than my thoughts. Unfortunately I am facing too much problems in learning especially I felt too embarrassment to ask my English teacher for help. I also registered for a computer based math class but again I want to say it is too difficult for me and I realized that I should have registered for a regular class with more teacher and peer contact.
If you would restore my financial aid, I would certainly take a lighter load of classes as well as seek help right away when needed. I really want to get my college degree. I can’t afford college on my own because I have lack of financial resources. I hope that you will restore my aid.
I look forward toward your positive response. Thank you in anticipation for taking your valuable time in considering my appeal.
Thank you once again.
