FAFSA and Grad School 45J
I am helping my son on his FAFSA for graduate school for Fall of 2019. We are stuck on question 45J. He can apply as an independent and so the parent information does not need to be included. But on 45J they are asking if anyone provided support in 2017. In 2017 my son was a sophomore/junior, and my husband and I provided money for both tuition and his apartment. But we will not be providing any financial support when he is in graduate school. What has 2017 got to do with upcoming graduate school in 2019? It doesn't seem to make sense why they would need to know about support back when my son was an undergraduate when he is registering as an independent in the future. I am afraid if I list all of the support we included two years ago that they will assume we are helping in 2019. But I am also afraid to leave it out. Help?7 replies
