A student who is listed as a dependent on the tax returns of their parent(s) or legal guardian, or who receives substantial financial support (more than 50%) from them. A married student whose spouse provides substantial financial support also can be a dependent student. A student under the age of 24 on the first day of the semester or term is presumed to dependent unless the student meets one of the exceptions listed in the Virginia Code.
