Family Information (TO BE FILLED OUT BY STUDENT)
The questions in this section may be easier to fill out with the help of a parent, legal guardian, or trusted adult. If you don't know an answer, you can leave it blank and continue.

All applicants for federal student aid are considered either “independent” or “dependent." If you answer NO to ALL of these questions, then you are most likely considered a dependent student and will be required to provide your parents’ financial information when completing the FAFSA form. Will you be 24 or older by Jan. 1 of the school year for which you are applying for financial aid? For example, if you plan to start school in August 2021 for the 2021–22 school year, will you be 24 by Jan. 1, 2021 (i.e., were you born before Jan. 1, 1998)? Are you married or separated but not divorced? Will you be working toward a master’s or doctorate degree (such as M.A., MBA, M.D., J.D., Ph.D., Ed.D., etc.)? Do you have children who receive more than half of their support from you? Do you have dependents (other than children or a spouse) who live with you and receive more than half of their support from you? Are you currently serving on active duty in the U.S. armed forces for purposes other than training? Are you a veteran of the U.S. armed forces? At any time since you turned age 13, were both of your parents deceased, were you in foster care, or were you a ward or dependent of the court? Are you an emancipated minor or are you in a legal guardianship as determined by a court? Are you an unaccompanied youth who is homeless or self-supporting and at risk of being homeless?
