NonCustodial Weight in Financial Aid?

<p>My parents are divorced and my dad has to fill out a noncustodial CSS profile for financial aid. Columbia says they combine both parents' incomes even if they're divorced. Well, through Columbia's financial aid net price calculator, my EFC tripled when I added my dad's income. Does anyone know what weight Columbia financial aid puts in noncustodial assets/income in reality? </p>

<p>I'm applying ED if that means anything (no comparing/negotiating fin aid, what Columbia gives me is it)</p>
