 +By now you’ve probably heard about the college financial aid loophole some parents — particularly in the Chicago area — have been using to increase the amount of financial aid their children can qualify for. They legally transfer guardianship of the their child to a friend or relative so that the only income the student reports on their FAFSA is the student’s own income — typically not much.

Lawmakers are working to close that loophole so don’t try it — those who have already used this scheme are being investigated.
