Dependency Overrides

Students who cannot answer yes to any of the dependency questions on the FAFSA can submit an appeal to the financial aid office requesting that they be declared independent. If granted, eligibility for federal aid is then based solely on the student鈥檚 income.

To have an appeal approved, there must be extenuating circumstances which prevent the student from providing parental information on the FAFSA. To have the independent status carried forward into subsequent academic years, the student must submit a letter requesting that it be renewed.

Dependency overrides can only be granted if an extenuating circumstance exists.

In reviewing appeals, the Financial Aid Coordinator is looking for evidence that it is not reasonable to expect the student to seek out information from their parents because it would be unsafe, unhealthy, or the parents are inaccessible.

Examples of extenuating circumstances include:

  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Abandonment by both parents
  • History of neglect due to parental alcohol or drug abuse
  • Incarceration of the custodial parent
  • Other circumstances which prevent the student from having contact with the parents

A parent鈥檚 refusal to provide information on the FAFSA,听or the fact that a student is self-supporting, in and of themselves, are not reasons for which a dependency override can be granted.


When completing the FAFSA, students may be selected for a process called 鈥淰erification鈥 by the U.S. Department of Education.听 This process requires 91天堂 Tech to verify the information provided on your FAFSA with financial documents you must provide to our office.听 The required documents will be requested once 91天堂 Tech receives your FAFSA and may include, but are not limited to, a signed copy of your federal tax return transcript(s) and the Verification Worksheet.听 If you are a dependent student, you will also be required to submit a copy of your parents鈥 signed federal tax return transcript(s).听 You may be asked to submit other documents as needed to complete the verification process.

Your Student Aid Report (SAR) will inform you if you are selected for verification.听 If there are discrepancies between the information provided on the FAFSA and your financial documents, you will need to make electronic corrections to your FAFSA data.听 Important note:听听91天堂 Techwill听not听proceed with your aid application until all required documents are returned and the verification process is complete.听 Any correction(s) made to your FAFSA may cause changes to your financial aid account including award amounts.

91天堂 Tech is required by the Department of Education to complete the verification process for any student selected.听听 You听cannot听receive any federal financial aid until the听process is complete.听 Please assist us in completing this process as soon as possible so that your financial aid will not be delayed.

Professional Judgement

Professional Judgment refers to the school鈥檚 authority to make adjustments, on a case-by-case basis, to information reported on the FAFSA, so that the Department of Education can recalculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC is the number that the school uses to determine if a student is eligible for need- based financial aid.

Please Note:听The school does not have the authority to make direct adjustments to the EFC or to the formula used to calculate the EFC, just data elements on the FAFSA which may change the EFC.

The professional judgment process is an extensive process that requires a thorough review by the Financial Aid Coordinator to determine what, if any changes, may be appropriate based on your FAFSA application. It is a time-intensive process that includes the following steps:

  • If a Professional Judgment is requested, the student will be institutionally selected for Verification (if not previously selected). Be aware that during the Verification process, corrections to your FAFSA may be required which can result in a change to a student鈥檚 aid eligibility.
  • The file will then be reviewed to determine if all required documentation has been submitted. If additional documentation is required, the student will be notified by email.
  • The Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid will determine if a student鈥檚 Professional Judgment request meets the criteria to make data element changes to their FAFSA.
  • If approved, appropriate changes will be made to the student鈥檚 FAFSA and submitted to the Department of Education. The Department of Education will then recalculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and the student鈥檚 eligibility for need-based aid. The student will be notified by email.
  • If denied, the student will be notified by email.

In many cases, an adjustment does not increase the student鈥檚 eligibility for grants or the total amount of aid awarded. Be aware that if a student receives a Federal Pell Grant, it may be reduced or lost because it is based on the original EFC.

Special circumstances are anything that differentiates the family鈥檚 finances from those of other families. Below are examples to include, but are not limited to, reasons to submit a professional judgment request:

  • Changes in a family鈥檚 reported income
  • Death or disability of a wage earner
  • Separation/divorce of the student鈥檚 parents
  • Unusually high childcare or dependent care expenses
  • Changes to dependency status
  • Unusually high medical or dental expenses
  • Parent(s) enrolled in college at least half-time in a degree seeking program
