2020–2021 Request for Federal Student Loan due to Parental Nondisclosure

You did not report parent information on your 2020-2021 FAFSA because you indicated you are only applying for a student Direct Unsubsidized Loan. If this item is listed under your Financing Tasks on My ASU, financial aid awarding and disbursement will be placed on hold until the eForm and required documentation below are submitted (or one of the alternative paths below are completed).

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 (c) refuse to provide their information and signature on their student's 2020-2021 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 2020-2021 Dependency Review and all required documentation at https://students.asu.edu/forms/dependency-review.
  2. If your parents are financially supporting you, correct your 2020-2021 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.
