Federal Student Aid Policy
- President Bush
- United States of America
July 19, 2006
To reform the Dependent Policy to qualify for Federal Financial Aid (College). This would change how an indivdual is classified when applying for aid to fund post-secondary education.
Those not eligible as a dependent on their parents' tax returns wold no longer be classified as dependents on the FAFSA.
This would allow those young people who do not recieve financial support from their parents to qualify for many more grants and loans.
Those single, unmarried or divorced individuals under the age of 25 that can no longer be claimed as dependent on their parent(s)/guardian(s) taxes, should no longer be considered dependents when applying for financial aid to fund post-secondary education.
In turn, the income of the individual applying shall be the only income considered when applying for such financial aid.
