Butts said.
Students must be classified
either financially , self-support-'
ing or nonself - supporting -
dependent on parents - before
they can participate in federal-
ly funded financial aid pro-
grams. if students are classi-
fied dependent they must prove
their family income is not suf-
ficient to meet their education-
al needs.
According to Butts, the pro-
posed guidelines alter two of
three requirements necessary
to be declared self - support-
THE FIRST IS the student
must not have been claimed as
a dependent on his parents tax
return two years prior to the
academic year. The present re-
quirements says only one year
prior to the academic year.
One of the loop holes used to
get around the one year re-
quirement is to have the par-
ents file an amended income
tax return deleting the depen-
dent student.
Butts said the University's
financial aid office is very con-
scientious but it is difficult to
verify all student claims about
parent's tax returns.
TUE SECOND revision is the
student must not have lived
with parents for six consecu-
tive weeks, one year prior to
the academic year. The cur-
rent regulations allows student
only two weeks with parents in

the same time period.
"The additional weeks is to
allow for some unusual circam-
stance like a veteran returning
home for a few weeks before
going off to college," Butts
