What is the difference between a dependent and an independent student?

Last Updated: Sep 30, 2022 Views: Views: 2

Dependent students use both their own and their parents' financial information on the FAFSA. Independent students report only their own. Dependency status helps determine the amount of financial support a student receives and multiple factors are considered when determining your status.

If you have completed your FAFSA and have questions about your dependency status, please contact Financial Aid at 770-528-4545  or
