Financial Aid

  • The CSS/FINANCIAL AID PROFILE is a supplemental financial aid form required by some private colleges to determine your Expected Family Contribution. Some colleges require this in addition to the FAFSA. It is a fully online service that helps colleges and organizations award their private student aid funds. 
     
    The CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE 2019-2020 Student Guide will be available on Oct. 1, 2019 at http://student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile. Some local schools requiring the CSS/FINANCIAL AID PROFILE are Cornell University, Nazareth College, Syracuse University and the University of Rochester. Be sure to check if the schools to which you are applying require the PROFILE. 
    The list of schools is available at www.collegeboard.org. The fee is $25 for the application and $16 for each additional school report. Once registered, the application can be completed and submitted immediately or at a later time. Contact information: 305-829-9793 or help@cssprofile.org.
