If you ordinarily would need to report parent information, but are unable to do so because of an unusual situation, 你应该拜访财政援助办公室,讨论你的情况,并询问你的选择. 您可能会被要求以书面形式记录您的情况,并填写我们的表格页面提供的独立状态请求表格.

 Do not simply stop going to class without submitting an official withdrawal!  You could be required to pay back the entire amount of your financial aid!
