I get irritated when they require extra documents for my daughter. I know she can't be President of the US, but in all other ways she should be treated just like every other American kid. If another applicant doesn't have to provide proof of citizenship, why should she? Her SSA status is 'citizen'. FAFSA doesn't, and shouldn't, require more than that if all other students are getting their FSA ID with nothing more than their SSNs.
