The University of Miami’s primary objective in awarding need based financial aid is to assist as many students as possible, taking into account possible sources of funding from the student, the custodial parent, and the noncustodial parent.
Noncustodial parent information is required of students whose parents are neither married nor widowed. In certain circumstances the University of Miami will consider waiving the requirement for the CSS Noncustodial PROFILE Request. Waivers based solely on your noncustodial parent’s unwillingness to contribute or submit application materials will not be considered.
