I am currently 27, unfortunately live at home, and have completed a BA from a UC that my parents are thankfully paying off.
However, after graduation in 2008 I realized that I wanted to start my own business in an artistic field, and would like to return to a Jr. College to learn, meet connections, and get an AA in my field.
I make under $10k a year in my business and most of that goes to investment in gear and whatnot. I do not want to ask my parents for help as they have already done enough and I am not utilizing that degree.
If I am over 24, but live at home and want to get a BOGW or fasfa aid, am I able to do so without claiming my parents income if they will not financially assist me in this endeavor?
