- Divorce or legal separation
- Large medical or dental expenses not covered by insurance

- Inability to add parents to the FAFSA due to abuse, neglect, unknown parentage, etc.
- Parental refusal to provide information
- Homelessness or at risk of being homeless (self supporting plus lacking fixed and adequate housing)
