This short paper examined the effects of marriage on eligibility for student assistance programs. Being married as a student has a number of possible effects on eligibility for student assistance depending on one's age and the employment status of one's partner. A few are positive; they result in greater eligibility for assistance. Some are neutral; they result in no change in student assistance eligibility. Among the most common results, however, is vastly decreased eligibility for student assistance. In some cases, the marriage penalty is so extreme that in can legitimately be called a disincentive to marriage. Appended are: (1) Parental Tax and Contribution Tables; and (2) Spousal Tax and Contribution Tables. (Contains 7 figures and 2 tables.)
