Did you become a legal resident of your state before Jan. 1, 2015?

This is question 19 on the paper Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form.

Select “Yes” if you became a legal resident of the state you entered in the state of legal residence question before Jan. 1, 2015.

Select “No” if you became a legal resident of the state you entered in the state of legal residence question on or after Jan. 1, 2015.

States use various criteria for determining whether you’re a resident for purposes of state financial aid. However, all states consider you a resident if you became a legal resident of that state more than five years ago.

Contact your college or career school’s financial aid office for assistance with state of legal residence qualifications.
