                   3
     An Alerts and Message text
      provides the status of the
      search
     Search results display name,
      city, state, and school code for
      each matching school
     Scrollable results display as
      many as 100 schools per page
     For results that exceed 100
      schools, the student may link to
      additional pages of school
      results found below the
      displayed results
     The encircled “i” links the
      student to More School
      Information.

  data, which will contribute to increased
  accuracy in awarding aid.

● 2012 - 2013 FAFSA on

  tax filing status of
  “Already completed”.

                      completed”

                      displays.
                     Applicant checks
                      “Married Filing
                      Separately”
                     Receives
                      message of

         Marital Status Changes
                       11
                       11


 A recent regulatory change allows an
  institution, at its discretion, to require an
  applicant to update his/her marital status,
  even if it results in a change in the
  applicant's dependency status, if the
  institution determines the update is
  necessary to address an inequity or to reflect
  more accurately the applicant's ability to
  pay.
        Homeless Youth Determination
                          12

● A student is eligible for homeless youth status if
  he/she meets the homeless definition and was
  determined to be homeless by his/her high school
  or school district homeless liaison, the director of
  a runaway or homeless youth center, or HUD.
● Students who meet this criteria are independent.
