I was putting in my daughter's financial info on the form and I kept getting an error about the numbers not adding up. She earned only $600 in 2017 from a summer internship. Her current savings are close to $3000 because she worked in 2018 and also got money from grad gifts. So that is definitely not adding up if you skip last year and don't account for those earnings. Is that what FASFA doesn't like about the numbers? How do you get around that?
Also, I am not sure if the money she earned from the college internship/research job is considered regular wages or of it goes under the other question about cooperative education program? It was not taxed at all. It would not go in both places, right?
Thanks for any help!
