CSS Profile is another form to complete for college money.
What is the CSS Profile?
The CSS Profile is a financial aid form created by The College Board, the same organization that administers the SAT and other tests.
Close to 400 colleges use the form.
“The schools that ask for both forms will typically use the FAFSA calculations in determining any federal aid they offer to a student, but use the CSS Profile information in determining their own institutional resources,” said said Steven Sirot, co-founder of College Benefits Research Group (CBRG) in Roseland.
According to Get Schooled, 24% of parents think their students will qualify for financial aid. HOWEVER, 85% actually qualify!
Get the APP and make completing the FAFSA even easier.
This information is from the following site: https://www.nj.com/business/index.ssf/2018/10/unlock_more_college_financial_aid_by_completing_th.html
Just in case you were intrested. Found on the IVY Tech website a comparison of tuition prices. You can find it here.
Remember to complete your FAFSA. You should then receive a financial report from colleges you list on your FAFSA. That report will help you make your decision financially on a college.
InVested Indiana provides expert information on the FAFSA and financing college.

VU Engineering students transfer to Purdue University
Beginning with the fall 2017 semester, engineering students at VU who are pursuing their associate degree can take part in a direct admissions program to obtain their bachelor’s degree at Purdue.
Initially, the direct admissions agreement will apply to first-time, full-time students enrolling at VU. The students must meet specified criteria to transfer to Purdue. The plan works toward maximizing education and degree completion opportunities for students.
“The direct admissions agreement adds an important dimension to the existing partnership between Purdue and Vincennes,” said Leah Jamieson, Purdue’s John A. Edwardson Dean of Engineering. “Most importantly, it represents the commitment of both institutions to continuing to grow the higher education opportunities in the state of Indiana.”
VU Provost Laurel Smith said: “We are excited to build on the longstanding 2 + 2 articulation agreement for engineering that Purdue and Vincennes have maintained for many years. With the direct admission pathways, qualified students will benefit from excellent instruction at a reduced cost in order to enter engineering professions with significant opportunities in our state and beyond.
VU students will be expected to complete their associate degree work to be eligible for direct admissions to Purdue. Students can transfer before obtaining their degree only with permission from both universities.
Direct admission prerequisites such as grade point average and required courses differ among the 15 engineering programs in which students at Purdue can major. Students must adhere to the guidelines to be eligible for direct admissions.
The agreement follows the history of student success in pursuing their education from VU to Purdue.
This information has been provided by the Assistant Director of VU Admimssions.
