- Federal law suspends your eligibility for federal student aid, if you have been convicted for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred during a period of enrollment for which you were receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, and/or work-study).
- Even if you are 23 years old, living on your own, paying your own way…the Gov’t still views you as a dependent student…meaning they still use your parents’ income to determine your specific “financial need”…(my advice: just wait a year until you are 24 and considered an adult in the eye of the Feds). More information on what qualifies you as independent can be found here.
- If you transfer schools, you MUST update your FAFSA online. You will not be able to receive loans at your new school unless you do this.
- FAFSA is not a loan!!!! It is a government form that determines your eligibility for all types of aid, including loans.
