How do I submit information if my parents are divorced?

If your parents are separated or divorced, you still need to submit financial information from both of your parents for your application to be considered complete. Both parents, including  those in a noncustodial role, need to fill out the CSS Profile, submit their federal tax returns, and W-2 forms. This information should also be submitted through the College Board’s secure IDOC platform.

Students who believe that it is impossible to provide parental information may submit the Noncustodial Profile Waiver Request form through IDOC. Waivers are reviewed once a student has been admitted to the Institute, along with the rest of your financial aid application. Please note that the Noncustodial Profile will remain in the financial aid requirements checklist as a required document until your waiver request is reviewed.

If you have trouble submitting financial information because of a previous or ongoing separation or divorce please contact us, we can help. We may be able to waive the need for financial information from your noncustodial parent.
