Students that normally need to provide parent information on the FAFSA might have unusual circumstances that prevent them from obtaining parent information. These circumstances may include, but are not limited to: death of parent(s), parent incarceration, drug/alcohol addiction of parent, abandonment or mental, sexual or physical abuse of the student by the parent. These circumstances do not include: parent refusal to give information and/or documents needed to complete the FAFSA, student no longer living with parent, or parent no longer claiming student for tax purposes. Students will need to provide documentation of circumstances for this process. The Dependency Override process must be completed while the student is still enrolled. Once a student is no longer enrolled, they forfeit their right to be granted a Dependency Override. If you think you qualify, call 1-800-247-7122 and speak with a Student Finance Specialist or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
