The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) asks a question about drug convictions to determine whether the student needs to complete a worksheet to determine whether their eligibility for federal student aid is affected.
You will want to select “No” to this question if:
Selecting "Yes" in this section does not disqualify you for Federal aid eligibility. Your eligibility won't be suspended. Drug convictions no longer affect your federal student aid eligibility. If you answer "Yes" you will be provided a worksheet to help you determine whether your conviction affects your eligibility for federal student aid. Please answer the questions correctly; however, they won't impact your eligibility.
