We use theand to determine a family’s contribution to educational costs. If the student’s parents are divorced or separated, we also consider the finances and contribution of the noncustodial parent when determining overall financial need. This information is collected through the noncustodial parent’s. In a limited number of cases, the noncustodial parent’s information may be waived. You must submit thefor consideration. Submission of this request does not guarantee that a waiver will be approved.

Undocumented students are considered for need-based financial aid like any U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Because federal financial aid is not available for undocumented students, institutional funding is used in its place. Undocumented students residing in CA may be eligible to receive state grant funds through the California Dream Act. More information about this application process can be found on the .

The financial aid process for undocumented students is similar to the process for U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents; however, the federal FAFSA application is waived for undocumented students. Undocumented students will only need to complete the by the due dates for the financial aid application. Visit our Financial Aid website for more information.

Parental citizenship status will NOT affect a student’s financial aid eligibility at °IJʿ since aid is determined solely by financial need. Whether or not the student’s parents file U.S. federal income taxes, the student must provide their parents' financial information on the financial aid applications.

While students can list their parent's Social Security number on the CSS Profile application, verification of their identity for the FAFSA is a multi-step process. For the FAFSA, the parent is required to create a studentaid.gov account that involves knowledge-based verification questions via TransUnion. If a parent is unable to complete the TransUnion process, they will receive instructions to contact the Federal Student Aid Information Center to provide acceptable documentation to verify their identity.
