The FAFSA is the official form that families must use to apply for federal financial aid to pay for college. It is also used by many states and individual colleges and universities in making their financial aid decisions.
The College Board’s CSS Profile™ is an online application that collects information used by almost 400 colleges, universities, professional schools, and scholarship programs to award financial aid from sources outside of the federal government. After you submit your application, the College Board sends it to the colleges and scholarship programs you have chosen. NOT ALL COLLEGES and SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS require the CSS Profile. Check with the ones you’re interested in to see if they require it.
This year BPS has also partnered with Mass Edco for financial aid services. For more information on Mass Edco please see their information below and visit Mass Edco for eligibility and other information!
