IM-#21 February 21, 2006,  IM-#87 August 18, 2005,  IM-#140 December 30, 2004

Enter the resources and income of individuals who are ineligible students on the appropriate screens so they are considered in making the budget and resource determinations. Enter the ineligible member’s share of income deductions and allowable expenses in the total EU deductions and expenses. FAMIS excludes all the individual’s income, expenses, and resources. It is important to go ahead and capture the information at application or when reported, so the information is recorded if the individual’s student status changes.

NOTE: Income of an ineligible student which is given to the EU is considered unearned income (contribution) to the EU.

An ineligible student does not affect the EU’s categorical eligibility status if all of the remaining EU members receive Temporary Assistance, SSI, SAB, or SP benefits, or any remaining EU member(s) is authorized to receive special support services. Enter the appropriate CE status on the Categorically Eligible (FMMK) screen.
