    CSS Profile is another form to complete for college

    What is the CSS Profile?
    The CSS Profile is a financial aid form created by The College Board, the same organization that administers the SAT and other tests. 
    Close to 400 colleges use the form.   
    “The schools that ask for both forms will typically use the FAFSA calculations in determining any federal aid they offer to a student, but use the CSS Profile information in determining their own institutional resources,” said said Steven Sirot, co-founder of College Benefits Research Group (CBRG) in Roseland.
    According to Get Schooled, 24% of parents think their students will qualify for financial aid. HOWEVER, 85% actually qualify!
    Get the APP and make completing the FAFSA even easier.
    This information is from the following site:

    Just in case you were intrested.  Found on the IVY Tech website a comparison of tuition prices. You can find it here.
    Remember to complete your FAFSA.  You should then receive a financial report from colleges you list on your FAFSA. That report will help you make your decision financially on a college.
    InVested Indiana provides expert information on the FAFSA and financing college.
