Divorced, Separated or Never Married Parents
The custodial parent with whom the student resides must complete the FAFSA and CSS Profile, along with the other required documents. The non-custodial parent will be asked to complete a Non-Custodial Parent Profile and other required documents. If married and filing separately, the non-custodial parent should also submit his or her spouse's federal income tax return and W2 form(s).
A waiver of the non-custodial contribution may be granted if a letter from a guidance counselor, teacher, principal, pastor, or an attorney attests to the fact that the non-custodial parent has not been in the student's life for a number of years.
