    (e)  Said  board  shall  set  aside  from  its

than  that  required  by  the  board of governors'
tuition policy established under  subdivision  (3)
of  subsection (a) of section 10a-6, AS AMENDED BY

employment   for  any  undergraduate  or  graduate
student who is enrolled as  a  full  or  part-time
matriculated student in a degree-granting program,

tuition  revenue an additional amount equal to one
per cent of said  tuition  revenue  for  financial
assistance for students who would not otherwise be
eligible for financial assistance but who do  have
a  financial  need as determined by the university
in accordance with this subsection. In determining
such  financial need, the university shall exclude
the value of equity in the principal residence  of
the  student's  parents  or legal guardians, or in
the student's principal residence if  the  student
is not considered to be a dependent of his parents
or legal guardians and shall assess  the  earnings
of  a  dependent student at the rate of thirty per
cent.
    (f)  The  Connecticut  State University system
operating fund shall be reimbursed for the  amount
by   which   the  tuition  waivers  granted  under
subsection (d) of  this  section  exceed  two  and
one-half  per  cent  of tuition revenue through an
annual state appropriation. The board of  trustees
shall  request  such  an  appropriation  and  said
appropriation shall be based upon an  estimate  of
tuition revenue loss using tuition rates in effect
for the fiscal year in  which  such  appropriation
will apply.
