Dependency determination

EOC uses the federal financial aid guidelines to determine parental dependency.  Students are considered INDEPENDENT of their parents if they can answer “Yes” to any of these questions :

  • Will you be at least 24 years of age by December 31?
  • Are you in college and working on a master’s degree (e.g. MA, MS), professional degree (e.g. M.D., J.D.) or a doctoral degree?
  • As of today, are you married?
  • Do you have children or other dependents (other than a spouse) who receive more than half of their support from you?
  • At any time since you turned 13, were you an orphan, in foster care, or a ward of the court?
  • Prior to reaching 18 years of age, were you an emancipated minor or did you have court-appointed legal guardian?
  • Are you homeless (i.e. you lacked a fixed, regular, & adequate nighttime residence) or at risk of becoming homeless?
  • Are you a veteran or currently on active duty in the military?

If you are considered a dependent on your parents for financial aid purposes, you must also include the your parent information – their taxable income, the number of dependents, and their signature on the EOC Request for Services (RFS)  form.
