I am trying to complete a Dependent form – why am I being asked to supply contact information for my parent and where is the form?
A dependent form requires information from both the student and the parent(s). The student and parent must complete their respective sections of the form and each sign electronically. You will need to enter the contact information for the parent that will complete and sign the form. The parent completing the form must be the parent who also signed the FAFSA for that aid year.
Why do I have to provide my parent(s) contact information?
Parental information is required for dependent students. Your parent(s) will receive an email with directions that will allow them to complete and electronically sign their part of the dependent form. They will need to create a username and password to complete the form.
My form was rejected, what do I do now?
Submitted dynamic forms that are incomplete or missing information (tax documentation or signature on tax documents) will be rejected by the Office of Student Financial Assistance and a “form rejected” email will be sent. The student or parent must take action on the rejected form.
The rejected form email outlines the next steps that must be taken by the student or parent. The rejected form will need to be electronically signed again by each user (student and/or parent if applicable).
Dynamic Forms and/or supporting documents cannot be submitted as email attachments or faxed.
How do I make corrections and/or adjustments to a form that has been electronically signed?
After a user signs and submits a Dynamic Form, it cannot be accessed again for the purpose of making corrections and/or adjustments. If the submitted dynamic form is incomplete, it will be rejected by the Office of Student Financial Assistance and a form rejected email will be sent. The student or parent must take action on a rejected form, based on the information within the rejected form email. The form will need to be electronically signed again by the user(s).
After I complete my form, do I log out?
If you have completed your required document(s), please be sure to log out of the system.
I completed a form but it isn’t listed in my forms history. Why?
If you do not complete a form in its entirety (through the signature stage) it will not be included in forms history, it will be found within the “pending Forms” section of the Dynamic Forms Dashboard. One way to verify you have completed the form is to look for the automated message after a form is successfully completed that will appear.
I completed the financial aid items on my To-Do List, why is it still listed as initiated?
Online form submission does not automatically update your To-Do List. After your online form is submitted and reviewed by the financial aid office, your To-Do List will be updated and the item removed. Please allow 5 – 7 business days for the items to be removed from your To-Do List.
