FAFSA - Parent info?

Postby downsouth » Sun Feb 20, 2011 7:39 am

I know that Need Access requires parent info, and when I go to fill out my FAFSA it asks if I want to include my parents' info on there. Do I want to? Or is Need Access sufficient for what the Law Schools need?

Many thanks!

It depends on your school, some ask for parental info and some don't. It also depends on your age.

I feel like such an idiot asking this but if a school requires parent's info they would mention that somewhere on their financial aid section of their website when they talk about the fafsa ... Or in a letter or something.... Right?

I received financial aid information regarding loans, FAFSA, etc. in the same letter detailing scholarship information.

Sorry for another dumb question. I submitted my Need Access without parents' info, and just realized now that schools may (may not) require it. Should I just fill the parents' info portion in Need Access and resubmit? Or should I just wait for school to contact me if they need the parents' info?
