Additional Aid Application Requirements
Parents who do not file a U.S. tax return
If your parent is a U.S. citizen and is not required to file a U.S. federal income tax return, a Parent Non-Filer Statement must be uploaded after you submit the PFAA. Sources of income should be listed on this form with supporting documentation (e.g., W-2 statements, disability benefit statements) for each source.
If your parent is a Canadian citizen, the first four pages of the T1 General for 2015 must be uploaded after you submit the PFAA.
If your parent files a tax return in their country of residence, both the original and a full certified and translated copy of the return (if not in English) should be uploaded after you submit the PFAA. If your parent is not required to file a tax return, a Parent Non-Filer Statement must be submitted in lieu of tax information. Sources of income (e.g., interest, employment income, real estate income) should be listed on this form with supporting documentation for each source.
Non-custodial Parent Forms
If your parents are divorced, separated or unmarried and living in separate households, your non-custodial parent must complete a Non-custodial Parent's Form. If your custodial parent is married, you do not need to complete this form. The custodial parent and stepparent information will be used in order to evaluate eligibility for need-based financial aid at Princeton.
The Non-custodial Parent Form is available in three different versions:
Your non-custodial parent should complete the appropriate version. This form, along with 2015 income documents, can be uploaded after the PFAA is submitted or sent directly to our office.
It is Princeton’s policy to require information from both parents in order to determine eligibility for financial aid. Under exceptional circumstances, the non-custodial parent's information may be waived at the discretion of the Financial Aid Office. Applicants can receive consideration for a waiver by submitting the Non-custodial Parent Waiver Request Form. This form, along with the necessary statements, can be uploaded after you submit the PFAA.
