I called because I don't speak with one of my parents either. So they said that if you don't then you don't need to put their information because you simply can't lol.

Also Hastings doesn't ask for that information btw. Its probably one of your other schools that wants parent information.


Yeah I tried submitting without their info and it doesn't let me. Would this be a call each school thing or a call the Need Access people thing?

Got that email on the 17th as well. It hasn't been a week yet. I wouldn't be too worried. If the aid is need based I should be getting some because I didn't make much $ last year. I've heard they are stingy, so unless they make an exception an give me some significant $$ I'm probably going to pass. Good luck!

Are you also filling it out for Davis? If you remove Davis from your list it no longer asks for parent information, at least it didn't for me.

Can't answer that question for you. I did for convenience, figured I'd redo it if I got in.

Yea. I'm curious as to when the next wave of scholarships will come out. If I can get another $10k, I'd be golden.

Hello purplethunder, did you hear from the school about $? I've gotten daily promotional emails but no news about aid. Starting to get worried now.

Nope, still nothing. I get those daily emails too but still no word on $$. I'm planning on emailing them to see what's going on. Maybe they're holding out because they're gonna give us hella $$? One can dream.

Hahaha. I like that theory. I'll email them this week too. Mainly because one of the emails had a PS that said "We will strive to get grant and scholarship notices out within one week of the receipt of your Need Access data." And it's almost two weeks for me.
