How will being married change there results of my FAFSA?


Answer by  malone (4817)

If you are recently married, the change will be reflected in the FAFSA that you file for the next academic year. While marriage may increase your gross income, your expenses also increase, so the change is not necessarily one that will decrease your aid package.

If you were previously a dependent of your parents for the FAFSA, you now become an independent student and can actually receive more aid. Otherwise, your spouse's income has no bearing on your results.

If you get married, your financial aid award will be calculated based on your new household financial situation. If your spouse works, your expected contribution may rise; if you are both in school, you may be eligibe for more aid.

Being married will reduce the amount of financial aid you qualify for through FAFSA because it takes into account the income of your spouse which is will increase your gross income.
