Dear [recipient's name]:
I am writing to you, Greenbrook College's financial aid department, to follow up on a letter I received that was dated July 28, 2010. The letter states that my application for financial aid for the upcoming fall semester had not been approved. However, I would like to appeal this decision, as I believe I do meet all qualifications for financial aid. Please notify me of the proper financial aid appeal process as soon as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your prompt attention to this important issue.
