Dear Registrar's Office / Dear Financial Aid Office [Remove to keep the relevant one],

My name is [Enter student name] and my student ID number is [Enter student ID number]. I know that the COVID-19 outbreak has had unprecedented impact on the school's operations, and wanted to thank you for your efforts in responding to this crisis in the best way possible.

The current circumstances have unfortunately led to substantial hardship for me. [Enter more info about your special circumstances, and how they're impacting your ability to pay for tuition in the required timeframe]

Given the unexpected disruption of this semester, I would like to ask if I could get on a payment plan for the spring. I would also like to ask if potential fees on this payment plan could be waived, which would really go a long way toward helping me navigate the coming months safely. ****I really hope that you will be able to grant this request to help me mitigate the financial burden that would be added to my disappointment in not being able to complete this semester as I anticipated.

I would also really appreciate any advice or guidance on how to make sure I can continue this semester in the best financial situation possible. Any information is greatly appreciated in this time of uncertainty.

All the best,

[Enter student name]
