FAFSA

Free application for Federal student aid

Based on factors such as your family's income and size, the FAFSA will determine how many grants and loans you will receive from the federal government. The FAFSA is open to seniors in October.

CSS Profile

Non-federal aid

In addition to the FAFSA, over 400 colleges and universities require the CSS Profile, which requests additional financial information so an institution can award non-federal aid. Seven Texas universities use the CSS Profile, including Baylor University, Rice University, and St. Edward's University.

While the CSS Profile is not free, it offers fee waivers for low-income students.
