Both parents should consider completing their own tuition awards application. AMHS believes strongly that parents have an ethical obligation to pay for their child's education to the extent possible. We understand, however, that parenting plans may be in place that cannot be compromised, and which may limit a parent’s responsibility for educational expenses. If either parent has remarried we will consider the income of the step-parent, keeping in mind the obligation of that step-parent to his or her other children. If either parent lives with another adult, we may consider the assets and income of that person, depending on the circumstances. We do not share the financial information of one parent with the other. If a tuition award is granted, both parents will decide how to divide the responsibility of paying tuition.
