Seniors - Financial Aid Forms 
The FAFSA and the CSS Financial Aid Profile become available online beginning October 1. These are the two forms that colleges use to determine financial aid eligibility. The FAFSA is used by all colleges for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid. The CSS Profile is used for non-federal financial aid by almost 400 colleges and scholarship programs. Not all colleges require the CSS Profile so be sure to check each college individually for their requirements. The earlier you file, the better chance there is of aid money being available so plan to submit your financial aid forms as soon as possible after October 1st.
