    Do you mean CSS Profile or other supplemental info required by the colleges?

    I don't think you include NCP info with FAFSA.

    Coffee, you can only do what is possible for you to do. If your counselor can't do until school resumes, just make sure to see that if gets down ASAP at that point. You also might want to send a quick email to your college(s) explaining that your counselor is away for a scheduled break and you'll get the letter in as soon as you possibly can.

    You don't put non custodial parent info on FAFSA.

    In a noncustodial parent case, would a student that lives with her father, but has health care through her mother, count the health care as outside help received on her behalf?

    I thought when I read the original post that the poster mistakenly said FAFSA non-custodial when he/she actually meant Profile non-custodial.

    Counselors are often expected to submit letters verifying that the student has no contact with the NCP. Otherwise, I'm not sure how a counselor emailing anything to the student about a NCP would even be in the picture.

    Maybe the OP can clear this up.
