College Board’s CSS/Financial Aid Profile (Domestic Students Only)

CSS School Code: 5222
CSS Profile

To be considered for any Furman-funded need-based grant aid in addition to any federal aid, you must complete the College Board’s CSS/Financial Aid Profile. Furman uses the CSS Profile to determine demonstrated financial need for the university’s need-based grant program (Furman Grant). Because Furman’s institutional resources are limited, we must take the best measure of a family’s ability to pay into account in awarding our own funds to students. International student applicants do not need to complete the CSS Profile. Complete your CSS Profile.

Note: Furman utilizes the College Board’s Institutional Documentation Service, known as IDOC, to receive and process financial documents that accompany the CSS/Financial Aid Profile. The College Board provides a secure website that students and parents use to upload tax returns, W-2s, 1099s, etc. that Furman uses in the evaluation of a family’s ability to pay for education. You will be notified by the College Board if/when we need these documents.
