• The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile are now available for the 2018–2019 academic year. We encourage students to submit the 2018–2019 FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov. Our federal school code is 002894. Instructions were emailed to students on November 17 to confirm what additional financial aid materials they may need to submit, including the CSS Profile, as part of their application for next year’s aid. FAOnline has been updated with all the appropriate documents as well.

  • The application deadline for the 2018–2019 academic year is March 15, 2018. Returning undergraduates who do not submit their application with all supporting documentation by this deadline are not guaranteed full consideration for need-based University grant assistance and may have their institutional aid reduced due to limited funding.

  • Are you receiving a scholarship for the 2017–2018 academic year? You need to provide a copy of the award letter you received from the scholarship agency to the Financial Aid Office. You can email, fax, or mail the copy to our office, but be sure to list your full name and your University of Rochester Student ID on any document you submit.
