CSS Financial Aid PROFILE Codes
The PROFILE form is administered by the College Scholarship Service (CSS), the financial aid division of the College Board. The CSS PROFILE is required by many private colleges and universities to determine your eligibility for non-government financial aid, such as the institution's own grants, loans and scholarships.
The biggest differences between the CSS PROFILE and the FAFSA are:
You can complete the CSS PROFILE online profileonline.collegeboard.com.
When you register for the CSS PROFILE, you will need the PROFILE code of the school or program to which you are applying. Use this form to find the correct code.
The city and state fields are optional and may be used to narrow the search. If the full name of the institution doesn't match, try using a substring. For example, searching for schools with "MASS" in their name will yield "BOULDER SCHOOL OF MASSAGE THERAPY", "UNIV OF MASSACHUSETTS-LOWELL", "MASSACHUSETTS INST OF TECHNOLOGY" and many others. To find schools that begin with "MASS", enter "^MASS". To find schools with both "MASS" and "TECH" in their names, enter "MASS.*TECH", where ".*" is the PERL wildcard sequence.
You can also use this form to look up a school name based on their CSS PROFILE Code.
