Paying For College

SENIORS - APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE?

If you are planning to apply for financial aid to afford the cost of college, NOW may be the time to get started. Priority financial aid application deadlines are generally in February or March; however, some deadlines are even earlier. Go to each college’s financial aid website for document requirements and deadlines.

Some schools require the 2017-2018 CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE (found at http://student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile), which is available NOW. The PROFILE is a financial aid application that many private and some public colleges use. This document will ask you for 2015 financial information. The College Board charges a fee to send the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE to schools. You may find a list of institutions that require the PROFILE on the above website; however, we recommend you go to each college’s financial aid website for document requirements and deadlines. For a complete student guide, click here.

All schools will require the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Keep in mind that you can now complete the FAFSA since it opened on October 1, 2016, and you can use your prior year (2015) tax information to complete the FAFSA.

Finally, some schools have their own financial aid application documents for you to submit. Be sure to check with each school to which you are applying!

If you have any additional questions about financial aid, FinAid.org is a great resource. Go to http://www.finaid.org/.

For more information on financial aid to afford the cost of college, please see our "Paying for College" section of Counseling Connections.
