01 - Submit CSS Profile

Submit the CSS Profile online by the November 1 priority deadline to receive your aid estimate with your Admissions letter and information packet. Completed applications received the deadline may receive an estimate in January.

02 - Submit Additional Forms (if Requested)

Submit any additional forms if requested.

Some applicants may be required to submit taxes and/or additional documentation to the College Board. If this is the case, you will receive email communication from the College Board providing you with instructions on how to submit any additional requirements through their online IDOC service.

If you do not receive a request to submit additional information, the Karsh Office of Undergraduate Financial Support has enough information to provide an estimated financial aid award at the time of admission.

03 - Review Your Estimate

Review your aid estimate. It will be based on the cost of attendance for 2023-2024,  and we’ll update it in the spring once the official 2024-2025 cost of attendance is announced. If you qualified for need-based grant aid and the cost of attendance for 2024-2025 is higher than the current year, we’ll increase your grant aid to cover the difference.

04 - Submit FAFSA

Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online by February 1 to receive your finalized aid offer in the spring. Your family contribution will not change, but we’ll adjust the aid for the next year’s costs and include your federal aid eligibility.

Note: Undocumented students should skip this step.
