Students may complete the CSS PROFILE online at collegeboard.org. The student must submit the FAFSA and PROFILE no later than February 2 of the senior year in high school. Further information regarding the application process is available from the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
Students must reapply for financial aid each year by submitting a CSS PROFILE and the FAFSA by April 15 of each year. Renewal applicants must be in good standing and making satisfactory academic progress in order to continue receiving federal and institutional student aid funds. Renewal of university need-based assistance requires a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 for the sophomore, junior, and senior years.
