Important Financial Forms & Terminology

FAFSA
The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. If you think you need help paying for your college expenses, you will need to apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA form. The FAFSA asks for tax information from the previous year and is available online October 1. Many colleges require the FAFSA to be completed by February 15, so check with your college or university in order to meet their specific deadlines.

The CSS Profile is similar to the FAFSA and is required by many colleges, universities, and scholarship programs. (For a complete list, click here.) The CSS Profile is administered through College Board, and is also generally due February 15. Again, check with your schools to determine their CSS Profile deadline.

It is important to know and meet all college financial aid deadlines. If you do not submit forms and paperwork on time you may lose out on funding that otherwise would have been available to you.
