I've never heard of a school requiring a FAFSA. I've only heard of them requiring a FAFSA if you wanted to be considered for aid.

There was one poster on the Paying for College board last year who told of their kid's merit scholarship credit disappearing off the tuition statement suddenly. When they looked into it, they were told it was because they never filed a FAFSA. Scrambling, they got the FAFSA in in time for the credit to be applied.

Could be a new trend, don't know, but it is one I am sure not going to buck.
