Verification of Independent Status- Active Duty
Your financial aid file has been selected for Verification of your Independent Status. This is based on answers you provided on your FAFSA indicating that you are on Active Duty in the U.S. Armed Forces and this status is the sole reason for being classified as Independent. The Department of Education has given UTSA authority to select financial aid recipients for this review process. Participation is mandatory in order to receive federal financial aid funds.

- Documentation from the Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS)OR
- Any documentation that indicates you are currently serving and have an “Active Duty” status with the U.S. Armed Forces such as a military duty statement or a copy of your most current orders
Please submit all documents at the same time, and write your name and Student ID at the top of every document. Documentation may be submitted in one of the following ways:
