Why am I still considered a dependent student? I’m 21 years old and haven’t lived with my parents for years.

For financial aid purposes, Federal and Massachusetts regulations consider students dependent until they are 24 years old, or are considered independent by marrying, serving in the military, or having dependents. Students may also be independent if they have been wards of the court. Find out more in our publication Are You an Independent Student?
