FAFSA: Free Application for Federal Student Aid - The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application used by virtually all two and four-year colleges, universities and career schools for the awarding of federal student aid and most state and college aid. Students must complete the application online, but click here to view the FAFSA on the Web Worksheet that can help walk you through the process or reference the information above.
CSS/Financial Aid Profile - The Profile is an online application that collects information used by colleges and scholarship programs to award institutional funds. Specific information on the colleges, universities and scholarship programs that require the Profile is provided via this site. Please be advised that some private colleges require the profile in addition to the FAFSA and there is a fee associated with filing the Profile for each school. Limited fee waivers are granted automatically based on the information entered on the Profile.
