After trying for 3 hours to renew S17's FAFSA online, I gave up and printed out a paper copy. I filled it out and signed S17's name, as well as mine. He is 8 hours away and won't be home before Thanksgiving and I won't send it in the mail to him because my income and assets are not his business. I have his power of attorney although I didn't indicate this on the form. Do you think this is a problem? Can I just mail in the paper FAFSA (which was actually easier to complete than the online form) or should I call the FAFSA people and try to get them to understand that the reason my username is already taken is because it's MY username?
Thank you. I know we are not getting financial aid and he doesn't have to take loans but we might qualify for Excelsior or I would just skip filing it.
