Okay, so I honestly have no idea what I should be doing in regard to financial aid. If anyone could help explain to me the difference between FAFSA and NeedAccess that would be amazing. Also, do all schools need your parents' financial info? Are actually copies of documents needed before an offer of aid will even be made? I have looked at the financial aid sections of the school websites I am considering and it does not seem very helpful.

Public schools don't need parents financial aid information. FAFSA doesn't require parents financial aid information since you will be finished with your undergraduate degree. NeedAccess requires parent information unless they are deceased, or somehow incapacitated from giving out that information. Need Access is institutional only, as far as I can tell it is only for private schools. But all schools still want FAFSA even if they want Need Access too.
