  • Your Social Security Number (And your parent's, if they have one)
  • Your Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
  • Your parents' or legal guardian's most recent tax returns, W-2s or other records of money earned 
  • The student must register or be registered with the Selective Service, if the student is male, at least 18 years old, and born after December 31,1959
  • A FSA ID is needed to sign electronically

Not a use citizen or permanent resident? You still may qualify for financial aid by completing the CA Dream Act Application

You are eligible if: 

  • You attended a California high school for at least three years, and 
  • You graduated or will graduate from high school (or the equivalent) in California 

 

Students holding most nonimmigrant visas (e.g., F or J) are not eligible. 

Documents helpful when you file the CA Dream Act: 

  • Most recent income tax return (if you file)
  • W-2 Form or an idea of how much your parent(s) earn 
  • Records of child support, if applicable 
Applying to Private Colleges?
  • The CSS PROFILE is administered by the College Board, a nonprofit organization
  • The CSS PROFILE is not a federal government document, it is used to consider students for all the non-federal financial assistance you are eligible for (i.e., loans, scholarships, grants, etc.). 
  • Deadlines for to submit the CSS PROFILE vary by institution however most deadlines are February 1, 2017.
  • Students seeking financial assistance still need to file a FAFSA in addition to the CSS Profile
  • The CSS PROFILE focuses more on your family's assets while the FAFSA focuses on your family's annual income
  • The FAFSA does not take minimum student contribution into account, while the CSS PROFILE does
  •  The FAFSA is completely free whereas the CSS PROFILE carries fees. The CSS PROFILE charges a one-time $25 application fee; this $25 fee includes sending the report to one college. CSS charges $16 for sending the report to each additional college. Do not let these fees scare you away from filling out the CSS PROFILE. There are fee waivers available.


The general perception is that top colleges can be too costly for the average family, and unfortunately, this belief discourages many qualified students from even dreaming of attending one. But for many of your students, a top college could be a perfect match, academically and financially.

It can quickly and easily show that a top college can not only become an option, but a comfortable financial fit for many families.
