Here is the thing. If you claim no income and you are not a dependent they know you are gaming the system. I got questioned because my bills are not supported by my income. In other words it isn't possible. I get child support which I do not have to claim on my taxes.
So if you make it look like fantasy they will ask for your household income.
You can get loans for more than your tuition but they are loans. If you go to a community college a pell grant does pay more than the tuition but it is meant to pay for books, computer, transportation, ya know, school stuff. Not girls night out.
