How Can I Work This Out To My Advantage?
I plan to apply into SDSU this fall, and this came into my mind. See, my parents are divorced. While looking at the financial aid part of the CSU system, they would ask me what my parents TOTAL income was. The thing is, my mom only makes around $30k annually, while my father makes over $70k . Once they hear my dad is an engineer making that much, they will turn me down. But i primarily live with my mom. How can I do this so that I can get aid under my mom without breaking any rules? SDSU will almost be free under my mom, but full cost with my dad involved.
