In applying this regulation, "applicant" means a person applying for admission to the institution, if applicant is married or 19 years of age, and financially independent. Otherwise, it shall mean parent(s), or legal guardian of the student. If the parents are divorced, residence will be determined by the residency of the parent to whom the court has granted custody.
