How to Apply For Financial Aid:
FAFSA and CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE
To be considered for all types of need-based aid, students must submit both the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE (PROFILE).
1. FAFSA is used to determine your eligibility for state and federal need-based aid including direct loans, federal work study and grants.
2. CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE is used to determine your eligibility for University of Miami institutional need-based funds. Download the Student Guide for instructions on completing the CSS PROFILE. . Completing the CSS /Financial Aid Profile will only determine your eligibility for institutional need-based funding from the University of Miami - it will not affect your eligibility for Federal Aid as determined by the FAFSA.
