I'm more or less done with Need Access, but I have to tie up a few lose ends. In question 10m, the form asks for something along the lines of "Parental Financial Assistance for the Most Recent Year you were in college."
My question for anyone who knows is twofold:
1) What does "education financial assistance" mean? Does that mean just stuff that goes directly to tuition and room and board and the like? Does it include personal expenses if paid by your parents?
If personal expenses paid by your parents don't go in 10m, I guess they go with your "Other Untaxed Income/Benefits" stuff?
2) The "most recent year" means, for example, if you graduated at the end of the 2006-2007 academic year, then you only report what your parents paid in 2007? Or does it mean for the entire academic year?
