Request for Federal Student Loan Due to Parental Nondisclosure

If this item is listed under your Financing Tasks in My ASU, your financial aid disbursement will be placed on hold until you provide the information requested.

Why this is needed

You indicated on your 2023–2024 FAFSA that you are applying for only a student Direct Unsubsidized Loan and did not report parent information.

This process is only for students who are (a) considered dependent for federal student aid purposes, and (b) whose parents do not financially support them and refuse to provide their information and signature on their student's 2023–2024 FAFSA.

This request will only provide students with the opportunity to borrow a Direct Unsubsidized Loan based on the annual dependent undergraduate student loan limits below.

Grade Level (based on credit hours earned) Annual Dependent Undergraduate Loan Limit

1st Year/Freshman
(0-24 credits earned)

$5,500 unsubsidized loan

2nd Year/Sophomore
(25-55 credits earned)

$6,500 unsubsidized loan

3rd Year/Junior
4th Year/Senior
(56+ credits earned)

$7,500 unsubsidized loan
Maximum lifetime borrowing limit while considered dependent by the FAFSA $31,000 unsubsidized loan
  1. If you have unusual circumstances (incarcerated parents, abusive family environment, abandonment, etc.) that prevent you from obtaining parent information and signature, submit a 2022-2023 Dependency Review and all required documentation at
  2. If your parents are financially supporting you, correct your 2022-2023 FAFSA to include your parent's information and signature. Note: if your parents add their information and signature to your FAFSA, they will not become responsible for any of your ASU charges or be required to financially support you in any way. It will just help you be considered for as many sources of financial aid as possible. Corrections may take up to a week for processing. Monitor My ASU for updates.

NOTE: If you are seeking to participate in the Starbucks College Achievement Plan, the ASU + Uber Education Partnership, or our partnerships with Aramark, Prime Communications, or any other partnership program that requires a FAFSA, you cannot use this form and receive the partnership benefits.
