Incarcerated Student

When you submitted your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2002-2003 year, the Social Security Administration indicated you are an incarcerated student.

An incarcerated student is defined as serving in a federal, state, or local penitentiary, prison, jail, reformatory, work farm, or similar correctional institution. Incarcerated students are eligible for certain programs, but are not eligible for student loans.

If you are not incarcerated you must provide us with a written self-certifying statement that your are no longer incarcerated.

You are not eligible to receive any federal student aid until this situation has been resolved.
