HELPFUL TIPS

  • Apply for admission EARLY- View application deadline information for freshmen, transfers and international students.
     
  • To be considered for need-based grants and other types of aid, complete both the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE. More information.
     
  • Always check with the Office of Financial Assistance Services when adding any awards from outside agencies.
     
  • Please review the Common Questions section for the policy concerning the impacts of outside aid on your University academic scholarship.

    FAFSA and CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE
    We encourage all of our eligible prospective students to consider applying for financial assistance. To be considered for need-based financial aid, you must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), available online at www.fafsa.gov. In addition, we will now be requiring all incoming freshman and transfer applicants to complete the CSS / Financial Aid PROFILE, available online at profileonline.collegeboard.org. International students should NOT submit the PROFILE form.
