The committee consists of two staff members of the financial assistance office, one of which will chair the hearing, two faculty members, and a member of the student affairs staff. The director of financial assistance and the athletics compliance officer will be non-voting participants.

- If the financial aid appeals committee finds that the decision to reduce, cancel or not renew aid is a violation of the rules, regulation and institutional policies, the appeal is immediately approved. The athletics-related aid is restored.
- If the extenuating circumstances are present, the committee may reinstate a portion or all of the athletics-related aid.
