Stupid NeedAccess Question

I have been reading about NeedAccess on this forum, but what exactly is it? Is it a supplemental financial aid form for specific schools? When is it due? I'd never heard of it until today. Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.

It's like FAFSA, except run by a private company I think (it costs $ to submit), only required by some schools, and about 10000x more pain in the ass than FAFSA.

It seems to give a more complete picture of your financial situation, and acknowledges the fact that while you may have been working and had income before LS, that's going to end (which FAFSA does not).

NeedAccess' deadline is the end of June, but some schools are going to require it well before that. Northwestern wants everything by March 1, for instance.
