Class of 2023 Senior Information

Financial Aid Applications & Offers

  • There is still time to complete the FAFSA and CSS applications. FAFSA is required for all federal aid. CSS is for non-federal aid from individual colleges. If you have been accepted into a college, and that college asks you to complete your financial aid applications, they mean one of both of these. Here is a list of colleges that require the CSS Profile. The CSS Profile deadline is March 31.  
  • Many students who completed their financial aid applications are receiving financial aid offers. Please read them carefully. Different colleges have different formats and it can be difficult to compare offers.You can accept or reject any part of an offer, and you can appeal an offer if you feel you are eligible for more aid (especially if your family’s financial situation has changed recently). Please reach out to Mrs. Ann Hoffman, our College & Career Advisor, with any questions.
