Anyone know which T-14 schools ask for parent's financial in

Postby imadude » Sat Jan 28, 2012 8:12 pm

GULC asks for it as part of the Need Access forms. Are there any that ask for it on the FAFSA? I'm trying my best to avoid putting my parents info on the FAFSA and just including it on the Need Access, since GULC and NU require it. What other schools require it? Feel free to post links, if you find them. I've been searching online and it's not always easy to find exactly what info you'll need. I guess every school sends out their instructions individually, but many haven't sent them out yet, and I'm trying to get this done ASAP. TIA. :)

Yale, Columbia, NYU all ask on need access.
I don't recall it being a question on the FAFSA

Berkeley doesn't take the need access and thus requires parental info on the FAFSA. Several including UPenn Will also ask for a copy of your parents tax return.

I'm 35 with a wife and kids, so parents info is sort of silly. My parents are basically below the poverty line at this point though (laid-off/semi-retired). Do you think I should include their info even if the schools don't ask? Would it help my need-based aid prospects?

Michigan requires it on the FAFSA.

Email the schools, I'm pretty sure you don't have to include it. I know for a fact that Berkeley doesn't require it if you're over the age of 30

Unless I'm missing something, Michigan makes it pretty clear that they don't want parental info on the FAFSA or need access.

Duke, if you want to be considered for merit + financial aid.

At least two years ago when I started, they specifically required it on the FAFSA. They must have changed how they do it.

This.....and if I recall from my first cycle in 09 when I pretty much enrolled but withdrew last minute, they didn't require it then either cause I certainly didn't provide it and received merit and need based aid.

Maybe 2 years ago was an isolated case.
