Maybe CO School of Mines does not require it, but I sure would ask outright rather than assume.

Used "apparently" because I did not look it up on their website, just inferred it from the fact that we got the merit-aid offer letter before filling out FAFSA.

Offer letter definitely states that FAFSA is required for need-based aid.

Do I infer correctly that your son is considering CO School of Mines? If he is looking at engineering/science, might want to consider a summer internship at a Dept. of Energy lab. The INL (outside Idaho Falls, ID) has their postings up; would assume others do also. Early application is recommended because of potential budget cuts.
