Who is a veteran of the U. S. armed forces?

You are a veteran for financial aid purposes and are not required to provide your parents’ information on the FAFSA if you:

  • Are currently serving or have engaged in active duty in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard
  • Are a National Guard or Reserve enlistee who was called to federal active duty for purposes other than training
  • Were a cadet or midshipman at one of the service academies (example: West Point)
  • Were released from service under a condition other than dishonorable
  • Are not now a veteran but will be by June 30 before the academic year for which you are applying
