Just to follow-up to a response that was given regarding the Non-filing statement. Will a general statement advising my daughter did not work at all suffice since she did not need to file taxes or does she have to complete one of the published forms?

The form. On the fin aid website under forms and publications there is a non filer form. Complete and sign then upload
