Dependency Override Application

 

 

Federal need based aid is awarded with the philosophy that the determination of need should include consideration of the parent's income, unless the student meets one of the independent criteria on the FAFSA (any of the following: over 24, in graduate school, married, veteran/military, dependent other than spouse)

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.

Circumstances that DO NOT Warrant a Dependency Override:

  • Parents refuse to contribute to educational costs
  • 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
