Latest from FSA: FAFSA Filers Under the Age of 13

July 24, 2014

When a person under the age of 13 wishes to apply for financial aid, his or her parent or legal guardian, financial aid administrator, or high school counselor must request a COPPA Compliant Special Handling FAFSA by contacting FSA at 1-202-377-3889 or by sending an email to Lisa.D.Washington@ed.gov. FSA will then send a COPPA Compliant Special Handling FAFSA, along with a specially addressed envelope to the address of the parent or legal guardian. The paper COPPA Compliant Special Handling FAFSA does not allow the student to provide an email address, thus ensuring that the Department does not communicate electronically with the underage applicant.

For more information, please see FSA’s original Electronic Announcement: http://ifap.ed.gov/eannouncements/071814FAFSAFilerUnderAgeOf13.html.
