To apply for need-based financial aid at the University of Chicago, you must submit a few documents that will allow us to review your family’s financial situation accurately: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS Profile. To get started, please select “Aid Application Instructions”.
*Rising 2nd year students are not required to complete the CSS Profile*
While the FAFSA is used to determine Federal Student Aid, you may need to complete additional documents if you would like to apply for a student loan. We ask that you submit these documents annually because we know you may want to borrow different amounts each year. "Loan Applications" will give you detailed instructions for your student loan application.
