If you would normally be required to complete parent information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but believe you have exceptional circumstances that justify applying as an independent student, you may submit it to FSU for review.

  • Parents unwilling to provide information on FAFSA or for verification purposes

  • Parents do not claim the student as a dependent for income tax purposes

  • Student demonstrates total self-sufficiency
