Which Colleges Require the CSS Profile?

Hey peeps! I was wondering if anyone knows which colleges require the CSS profile for financial aid applications. I'd appreciate it if y'all could help me out in figuring out whether I should start working on my CSS profile or not. Thanks a bunch!

Hello! The CSS Profile is used by many colleges and universities to determine financial aid for students. It's important to check the specific requirements of the colleges you're interested in applying to, as not all schools require the CSS Profile.

To get a general idea of the schools that require the CSS Profile, visit the College Board's website where they provide a list of participating institutions here. Keep in mind that the list is subject to change, so it's essential to verify the information on the institutions' official websites.

In addition to the FAFSA, which is required by most colleges to determine federal financial aid, submitting the CSS Profile can potentially open up more financial aid opportunities from the college or university itself. It's a good idea to start working on your CSS Profile if you are considering colleges that require it, as completing it may improve your chances of obtaining financial aid.

Remember, each college will have its own deadlines and procedures for submitting financial aid applications, so make sure you are aware of the specific requirements and deadlines at each institution. Good luck!
