What schools require parental information on the fafsa?

According to FAFSA if you're pursuing a graduate degree you're independant however some schools require you to put your parental information down anyway. I thought it'd be a good idea to get a list going to help people out when they're filling out their FAFSA.

I think the implication was that any school interested in that information would ask for it if it was not already provided. Don't take my word for it, though. I better go back and look at the language used again to be sure...

FYI- I looked into this and I would definitely advise that you contact the financial aid office at each of the schools you applied to to find out what their requirements are to ensure that you are awarded a financial aid package. Every school has different requirements, and it's up to you to make sure they are all fulfilled.

Can anyone confirm that none of the T14 want parents' information on the FAFSA?
