Students Who Lack Funds from Parents Say Federal-Aid System Is Unfair.
Burd, Stephen
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n41 pA29-A30 Jun 20 1997
College students are complaining that Congress has made it too difficult to demonstrate financial independence to qualify for federal financial aid. Legislation in 1992 tightened the policy on financial independence to prevent affluent students from cheating the system. Colleges are reluctant to step in for fear of state-conducted audits of colleges' federal student aid programs. (MSE)
