Dependency Status Appeal 2021-2022

The underlying principle of need analysis for federal financial aid is that parents have an obligation to finance the education of their child(ren) to the extent they are able. The analysis measures ability to pay, not willingness. If there are extenuating circumstances that have caused a break in the normal parent/child relationship, you may appeal to the Office of Financial Aid to have your status changed to independent; thereby, relieving your parent(s) of the responsibility of paying any part of your educational expenses. The unwillingness of your parent(s) to provide parental data on your FAFSA or to financially support your education, or your unwillingness to seek financial assistance from your parent(s) is NOT an acceptable reason to appeal your dependency status. Having sufficient resources to pay your own expenses is also not considered an extenuating circumstance for determining dependency status. Please submit the dependency status appeal form as well as the special circumstance verification worksheet.
