Homeless or at Risk of Homelessness


Your FAFSA application was submitted without parental information because you indicated that you are homeless or at risk of homelessness. A financial aid administrator will be contacting you to determine that you meet the following conditions necessary to be considered homeless and therefore, do not need to provide parental information.

 

  • You are homeless, which means you are lacking fixed, regular and adequate housing, which includes living in shelters, parks, motels, hotels, public spaces, camping grounds, cars, abandoned buildings, or temporarily living with other people because you had nowhere else to go. Also, if you are living in any of these situations and fleeing an abusive parent, you may be considered homeless even if your parent would otherwise provide a place to live

And

  • You are unaccompanied, which means you are not living in the physical custody of your parent or guardian.

What you should do:

If you are able to get written evidence of your situation from people like school counselors, social workers, service providers, or clergy. If you do not have current documentation, then a financial aid administrator will be contacting you to schedule an interview.

If you are not able to obtain written evidence of your homeless status, your financial aid administrator may make a determination about your status based on a documented interview with you.
