Received an ACD. The FAFSA application only asks about drug convictions. I was charged with possession, but not convicted. The judge deferred adjudication for 6 months, and provided that I complete my community service (which i've already done) and stay out of trouble, the charges, arrest, and other matters will be dismissed and sealed pursuant to CPL 160.60.
Does a pending charge, or open case, impact financial aid eligibility?
