Need Access and Parent Information

Postby Sherlock1708 » Wed Feb 08, 2012 8:14 pm

Is anyone having a difficult time getting their parents to provide information for Need Access? I am 28 years old and do not live with my parents. My parents are also 70 years old and retired. They will not be paying for my law school nor do they want to share their personal information with whoever will be reading the Need Access application. I didn't need to fill out parent information on FAFSA because FAFSA declared me as independent. Is there anyway to get around this?

It's really hard to do - I tried to get them to let me only submit one parent's info, but after many calls to NeedAccess I found the best thing to do is contact each of your schools that requires NeedAccess and explain the situation and see what they say.
