Ishtar,

Well, I probably won't at first. I'll get turned down because I made too much money last year and have to fight for it because of a change of circumstance.

Not necessarily. Most people don't bother to submit any paperwork for change of circumstance.

Definitely submit the explanation for changed circumstances with your student financial aid package. I went from full employment to part time and emphasized that the income upon which they would be basing their decision was not a true representation of my financial situation. They agreed.

I don't recall if I had to write a letter or if there was a form, but why not ask the financial aid office now? That way you know what you're looking at.
