I am filling out the FAFSA now and i have about $8500 in grants+scholarships where around $5000 is tuition/school related (not including housing). This aid is all for the fall quarter. So I have about $3500 in taxable income, but since its under $5700 (or whatever the threshold is) I know I don't have to file a tax return...but do I have to report the $3500 on the FAFSA somewhere?
Also I am confused because the 1098t form I received only lists the aid I received fall quarter even though box 7 is checked (box that saids academic period from Jan - March 2013 is included). Is the winter quarter aid not listed because the form follows the calendar year rather than the school year?
