For financial aid purposes, Federal and Michigan financial aid authorities and BMCC consider students dependent until they are 24 years old, or are considered independent by marrying, serving in the military, or having dependents. Students may also be independent if they have been wards of the court or working on a degree beyond a four-year degree.
