Request for Reconsideration (RFR)

A student must notify Alberta Student Aid if there is a change to any of the student’s application information. Changes must be reported even if the student does not believe eligibility will be impacted. This information may be provided by submitting a Request for Reconsideration (RFR).

A Request for Reconsideration may also be submitted when a student is requesting additional funding.

A Request for Reconsideration must be received by Alberta Student Aid at least 30 calendar days prior to the period of study end date indicated on the student’s current application.

In most cases, when a RFR is received a new eligibility calculation is done on the student’s application.

Refer to the Review Process Chapter and the Alberta Student Aid website for more details on the review process and how to submit a RFR.

Cancellation of a Request for Reconsideration

Students may cancel a Request for Reconsideration at any time prior to the completion of a review of the request. However, Alberta Student Aid may reassess the student’s application based on the information received as part of the request.
