Prospective Undergraduate

We understand that the decision to invest in a quality education is substantial. That’s why we provide a sound program of need- based financial assistance. Typical packages include scholarships, grants, loans, work study, and outside awards.

Below are the financial aid application requirements for undergraduates applying as US citizens or eligible non-citizens for Fall 2019. Additional items may be requested once a financial aid counselor begins to review your application. Any subsequent requests for information will be emailed directly to you. It’s important to meet the deadlines listed below and to respond promptly to all additional requests for information.

Application Details

CSS Profile

The CSS Profile is used to determine your eligibility for need-based University of Rochester grant funding.  In situations where a student’s parents are divorced, separated or were never married, the CSS Profile is required to be completed by both biological parents.  Keep in mind that both parents use the same College Board website, but do not have access to each other’s CSS Profile.

Resources to help you complete the Profile can be found on the College Board website at cssprofile.org.  Included on the site is the CSS Profile Student Guide, CSS Profile Overview and the CSS Profile Tutorial.

The Profile will be available on October 1, 2018 for the 2019–20 academic year.

Our school code: 2928

FAFSA

The FAFSA is used to help determine your eligibility for all federal aid programs.

The FAFSA will be available on October 1, 2018 for the 2019–20 academic year.
