Petition for Independence

If you are considered dependent on the FAFSA but you are unable to provide parental information due to abuse, neglect, a lack of contact or a strained relationship with both of your biological or adoptive parents, you may submit this Petition to be considered independent for financial aid. 

The 2021 - 2022 petition applies to fall 2021 through spring/summer 2022.
