What is the CSS PROFILE? - The College Scholarship Service (CSS) profile determines your eligibility for non-governmental financial aid, such as the college’s own grants, loans and scholarships. - When you register for the CSS Profile, you will need the PROFILE code of the school or program to which you are applying. You can find a worksheet for this at www.finaid.org/fafsa/cssprofile.phtml. You can register for the CSS PROFILE online at www.collegeboard.org
Do all schools require me to fill out a CSS Profile? No! Please check this list to see if the colleges you plan on applying to require you to fill out a CSS Profile. Also, if you are required to fill one out, make sure you are aware of the filing deadline for EACH school.
