Another significant factor is that if the parent or guardian claims the student as a dependent on income tax returns, this effects the amount of aid available to the student. In general, a student who is 'independent' of the parents as far as the tax law goes, will receive more in financial aid awards.

First year students may find that they receive fewer grant awards than they expected. However students who are sophomores, juniors or seniors are more likely to get more grant awards. No matter what year of school you are in, complete the FAFSA every year so that you will be considered for available grants.
