Is there a list somewhere of FAFSA-only schools?
In many cases, the NPC assumes two married parents...not a single parent.
Some colleges' NPCs do ask if the parents are divorced, and provide spaces to fill in NCP income and assets if they are.
I learned a bit more about the NCPs situation last night after talking to his brother. His brother, who is a responsible, reliable individual, indicated that he is sure the NCP (his brother) would NOT complete the FAFSA
He has lots of issues with back taxes, court cases, etc., although his "above the table" income is low. The brother also reminded me that the NCP has assets of at least $350,000 from the 1/3 of the house he inherited with his parents. The brother thought maybe the fact that it was in a trust might make a difference...?? There are also numerous court cases, law suits, etc. swirling around him
