2024-2025 Independent status verification

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.

Why this is needed

This eForm is to confirm that you correctly answered the 2024-2025 FAFSA dependency question(s) since they do not match the answers submitted on the 2023-2024 FAFSA, or you left all of the answers to the questions blank.


If none of the statuses on the eForm apply to you, do not submit this eForm. You must correct your responses to the FAFSA Student Personal Circumstances to "None of these apply." For instructions on correcting the FAFSA, visit studentaid.gov/apply-for-aid/fafsa/review-and-correct/correct. Then, include your parents' information and parent signature. Check your Financing Tasks in My ASU three to five business days after correcting your FAFSA. You may be required to submit additional documents. Once you have corrected your FAFSA, this item will be removed from your Financing Tasks in My ASU.

  1. If you are unable to provide parent information on the FAFSA due to an unusual circumstance (e.g., parents are incarcerated/institutionalized, abusive family environment, abandonment), submit a 2024-2025 Dependency review instead of this eForm.
  2. If you do not have an unusual circumstance BUT your parent refuses to complete the FAFSA, or does not and will not financially support you, submit the Request for federal student loan due to parental nondisclosure eForm instead of this eForm.
