CSS Profile Noncustodial Parent Waiver Request

For need-based institutional grants and scholarships, Baylor University requires all new undergraduate students to provide both of their biological/adoptive parents’ information on the CSS Profile, regardless of their current marital status.  In unusual circumstances, we may consider an exception to this requirement.  Examples of such circumstances include:

  • Physical and/or mental abuse from noncustodial parent
  • Abandonment or neglect from noncustodial parent
  • Legal order(s) that preclude contact with noncustodial parent

If you believe that you have a compelling reason to be considered independent, please contact our office at scholarships@baylor.edu with a brief explanation.  We will then guide you through the process from there.
