Single parents are welcome to apply for financial aid. In addition to the required tax documents, single parents are asked to complete a Statement of Explanation waiving the noncustodial parents’ responsibility for providing financial support for educational expenses. On this Statement, you will also be asked to explain whether you know the whereabouts of the second household and provide a brief explanation of the situation.
Please note that University Prep’s financial aid program is predicated on providing funds to families who are unable to meet the full cost of attendance, as opposed to unwilling. For that reason, if there is a second custodial parent who refuses to complete the financial aid application, we will not consider that application complete.
