CSS/Financial Aid Profile - Some colleges also require the completion of the College Board's CSS/Financial Aid Profile. Very few colleges across the country require this application, for example, Augsburg, Carleton, Gustavus, Macalester, and St. Olaf require it in Minnesota. Be sure that your college requires it as there is a fee included. To register electronically, students may go to and click on "profile online," or call 800-778-6888 AFTER completing a worksheet.
