CSS School Code: 5222
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. Complete your CSS Profile.
International student applicants do not need to complete the CSS Profile.
Only first year students are required to complete the CSS Profile if requesting a review for institutional need-based aid.
