This form is used to determine whether you are a dependent student or an independent student according to the Federal Need Analysis Methodology.
This form applies to the July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018 school year.
A veteran is a student who participated in active service in the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard and was released under a condition other than dishonorable. This includes a student who attended a US military academy but withdrew in good standing, as well as a student who is not a veteran now, but will be a veteran by June 30, 2018. If you are currently serving on active duty in the Armed Forces for other than training purposes, you also qualify as an independent student.
A dependent child does not have to live with you, so long as the child receives more than half of his/her support from you. The child may include a biological or adopted child, or a child for whom you are the legal guardian. Note that generally speaking, if the child meets the 50% support test, the child should be claimed as an exemption on your income tax return.
