Colorado State University: public and uses FAFSA but also wants noncustodial parent financials
I'm divorced. My ex is the custodial parent. With our older children and other public colleges, I did not have to share my financial info. And I understand that many private colleges are smart/fair and ask for financial info from all parents and step-parents. Colorado State University is a public college, so I assumed they would just use my ex-wife's financial info she provided via FAFSA. However, they are requesting my financial info as the non-custodial parent. Has anyone gone through this non-custodial parent process at CSU? Since my income is quite a bit more than my ex-wifes, is this likely to eliminate or greatly reduce any financial aid for my child at CSU?4 replies
