QuestionWhat is the CSS Profile? Do I have to complete it?
This is the College Scholarship Service Profile. It's a financial aid form, much like the FAFSA, that many college students have to complete to get financial aid. The difference between it and the FAFSA is that the CSS Profile considers your family assets. Many times, private colleges require this form to be completed, but this can vary. It's best to check with your school to see if you must do this.
