  • you reside inside the U.S. and possess Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status or are undocumented and will graduate from a U.S. high school 

All documents for financial aid applications are submitted using the IDOC service. The deadline for submitting financial aid applications is April 30.

Required materials:

If you are a U.S. citizen (or an “eligible noncitizen”), a FAFSA must be filed in addition to the CSS PROFILE.

You must submit your parents’ 2015 federal tax return and all pages and schedules, as well as all W-2 and 1099 statements used to file the tax return.
