With the start of a new school year, SAGE Scholars is committed to helping our families secure as much aid as possible to help with the cost of higher education. Below is a quick overview with helpful guidelines and tips on filing your FAFSA form and completing your CSS Profile.
The FASFA, (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form allows you to be considered for federal student aid. In addition, states and colleges use FAFSA information to award their own grants, scholarships, and loans. But, since aid is limited, you have to meet the deadlines and the sooner you apply the better.
The CSS Profile is an online application that collects information used by nearly 400 colleges and scholarship programs to award non-federal aid. We strongly recommend filling out both forms to apply for aid, since many families who think that they would not qualify, actually do. College is expensive enough, so let's not leave any money on the table!
