FAQ - Financial Aid

Why does the FAFSA ask for parent information when I don’t live with my parents and they don’t claim me on their taxes?

Dependency rules are determined by the Department of Education and include questions about your age, marital status, whether you support someone, etc. These questions about your dependency do NOT include who claimed you or where you lived for the award year. If you are not truthfully able to answer “yes” to any of these dependency questions on the FAFSA, then you are considered dependent and must provide parents’ information. If you cannot provide this information, contact your Financial Aid Office.
