Independent Undergraduates: 1999-2000 - This report provides a comprehensive look at independent students enrolled in postsecondary education in the United States and Puerto Rico in 1999-2000. Independent students who comprised 52% of all undergraduate students in 1999-2000 are those who are either at an age at which they are expected to be financially independent or have family responsibilities or other characteristics that require institutions and financial aid administrators to treat them as adults with certain needs that differ from those of dependent students. (Christina Chang Wei, Stephanie Nevill, Lutz Berkner and C. Dennis Carroll, National Center for Education Statistics, September 2005)...
