- Q: What if one parent is unemployed?
A: It is the position of the school that divorced parents, separated parents or parents that have never been married retain the obligation to contribute to the education of their children whether or not there is a legal agreement between them to do so. The Financial Aid Committee will consider the resources of both parents, if living, before making an award. If either parent is remarried, the resources of the stepparent are considered, bearing in mind the obligation of the stepparent to his or her natural children. Both natural parents and any stepparents must, therefore, provide financial aid information by submitting a TADS application. In the case of divorced, separated or never-married parents, one parent’s information is never disclosed to the other.
