Household size and number in college is determined by a few important principles:

  1. If the student is independent, the household size is made up of the number of people that the student and/or spouse will support more than 50% during the aid year. The number in college is determined by the number of people that the student and/or spouse will support more than 50% during the aid year and will be attending a title IV eligible school at least 1/2 time in that same aid year.
  2. If the student is dependent, the household size if made up of the number of people who are not attending college as potential independent financial aid recipient and the parent(s) support will be more than 50% during the aid year. The number in college is determined by the number of people that the parent(s) will support more than 50% during the aid year and will be attending a title IV eligible school at least 1/2 time in that same aid year. The parents cannot count someone in the household size that is independent at any institution for financial aid purposes. One person cannot be counted in two household sizes.
