These questions reference a student's parent for FAFSA filing purposes. A parent is a biological or adoptive parent and/or a step parent in the case of a remarriage (see Question 59 for marital status guidance).

Grandparents, foster parents, and legal guardians are not considered parents on this form unless you have been legally adopted by them.

Parental information is required when a student answers no to all questions in the Student Status section (Questions 46-58).

2015 tax information will be necessary to complete this section.

Always answer $0 if a question does not apply to you. Do not include cents. Round to the nearest dollar amount.
