No because your Fafsa for the entire school year Fall of 2013 to Fall of 2014 is dependent on your income at the time you filled out your fafsa in Spring of 2013. So no you wouldn’t qualify as independent until 2015 your senior year. But I think you might qualify as an independent student already.

If you can answer yes to any questions your considered independent
Were you born before January 1, 1990?
As of today are you married?
At the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, will you be working on a master’s or doctorate program (such as an MA, MBA, MD, JD, PhD, EdD, or graduate certificate, etc.)?
Are you currently serving on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces for purposes other than training?
Are you a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces?
Do you have children who will receive more than half of their support from you between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014?
Do you have dependents (other than your children or spouse) who live with you and who receive more than half of their support from you, now and through June 30, 2014?
At any time since you turned age 13, were both your parents deceased, were you in foster care or were you a dependent or ward of the court?
As determined by a court in your state of legal residence, are you or were you an emancipated minor?
As determined by a court in your state of legal residence, are you or were you in legal guardianship?
At any time on or after July 1, 2012, did your high school or school district homeless liaison determine that you were an unaccompanied youth who was homeless?
At any time on or after July 1, 2012, did the director of an emergency shelter or transitional housing program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development determine that you were an unaccompanied youth who was homeless?
At any time on or after July 1, 2012, did the director of a runaway or homeless youth basic center or transitional living program determine that you were an unaccompanied youth who was homeless or were self-supporting and at risk of being homeless?

No. You meet none of the requirements to be considered independent. The financial aid office will not and cannot say “Hey, close enough and you need it.”

You will not be considered an independent student until after your 24th birthday.

Edit:
Stop downvoting and getting angry when you are awful with even explaining you question.

For this year, you are a dependent.

For the NEXT school year (2014-2015), you will be considered independent so long as your birthday falls before December 31, 1991.

Yeah, you obviously were clear on what you were asking because it totally made sense before telling people to get their facts straight… They did in fact know what they were talking about, they simply applied the dates for this year instead of next.
