Do I qualify for an apartment that has income restrictions?

There's a couple of apartment complexes that I've been looking at, but they're income restricted - you have to be making less than $36,960 for one person to qualify. I don't know if I qualify, even though my income is lower than that, because I'd also be going to school part time at a local community college for the next year or so.
Here's an example of an apartment complex that I'd like to check out: Addison on Fourth
Scenario: For 2013, I went to college part time (10 credits, 5 audit), then got a contract job this June. The total I'll be making from that, and UI, is around $32000.
For 2014, my contract will end in May (or before), and I will have made $23600 or so at the most. Then, entering school again as a part time student, taking 5-10 credits per quarter. (I'm not in a degree program, I just want to take Calculus, Comp Sci, and Economics for career development and personal enrichment.) All of my school expenses, including tuition are out of pocket, hence the part time status.
For 2015, I'll be in school part time through April, and then ready to hit the job market. I'd probably be making < $36,960 by then, so I'd move out after school is done.
I've heard confusing things, like that students aren't allowed. But, it says 'Full Time', and friends have said that part time students are OK. I just don't know if 1. I qualify, and 2. how to explain it to them, so that they'd consider me. I'm in a position to move now if they accept me. Thanks!
