Attention Seniors! CSS Profile: Application for Institutional Financial Aid

Hello Senior Families!

This message is for those of who are applying to colleges that require the FAFSA and the CSS Profile to apply for financial aid.

The CSS Profile is an application used to award institutional scholarships, grants and merit-based aid and is required by more than 300 colleges, universities and scholarship organizations.  Colleges that use the CSS Profile are predominantly private college and out of state private colleges. The UCs and CSUs do not use the CSS Profile.  You can find the list of participating colleges here .

For example, USC does require the CSS Profile.

If you are applying to a college that requires the CSS Profile, please complete this form as soon as possible. The CSS Profile application can be found here. The financial information that is provided by completing the CSS Profile will allow these colleges to create an estimated award offer if you are accepted to their institution.  As we wait for the FAFSA to open sometime in December, we are also anticipating that processing of the FAFSA may take longer than expected.  However, the estimated award as a result of completing the CSS Profile, will more than likely be the actual award you will receive.

Additional important information regarding financial aid applications:

  • Students that apply Early Action/Early Decision may have a November or December deadline for the CSS Profile.  Please check deadlines on the respective university websites.
  • The University of CA (UCs) and the CA State University (CSUs) do not require the CSS Profile.  They only require the FAFSA or the CADAA
  •  UC priority deadline for the FAFSA or the CADAA is March 2nd
  •  CSU priority deadline for the  FAFSA or the CADAA is April 2nd       

Again, if college required the completion of the CSS Profile, we encourage you not to wait until the FAFSA opens in December to complete the CSS Profile. If you have any questions, please reach out to your counselor.

Peer Tutoring for Connect HS Students

A message from the Connect High School Tutoring Club Leaders:

We have recently started a tutoring program where a group of students who are doing well in a particular subject sign up to spend 30 minutes after school tutoring their fellow students. We offer services to both cohorts, Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:15-3:45 pm.

It is a drop-by program so anyone who needs help can stop by and get help – there is no need to sign up! We focus particularly on homework help and less on concept understanding, as that is something teachers already do. We offer math tutoring up to Pre-Calculus and other subjects such as English, Psychology, and SNHU. We are working on expanding what we offer, so if you are interested in being a tutor and want something that looks good on your college resume, come by for more information.

For more information, contact:
Caleb (T/F cohort) – caleb_halpine@student.davincischools.org
William (M/Th cohort) – william_bleier@student.davincischools.org

USC Bovard Scholars Summer Program- applications now open!

The 2024 USC Bovard Scholars application is now open!

We are excited to welcome our eighth cohort of Bovard Scholars to the USC campus this summer. As I write to you, our seventh cohort is in the midst of the college application process, working with our program’s college admissions counselors to refine essays and applications. And our sixth cohort is enjoying their first year as college freshmen at top-tier universities across the country — think Harvard, Columbia, the University of Chicago, the University of California, Berkeley, and right here at USC.

We invite all high-achieving high school juniors with financial need to click  apply.

Do you or someone you know fit these requirements?

  • Junior in high school (11th grader) at time of application
  • Currently hold a 4.0 GPA or above
  • Enrolled in Algebra II, Trigonometry or above
  • Demonstrate financial need

If so, you are eligible to click and  apply.
If selected, each Bovard Scholar will have one full year of support through the admissions cycle and spend three weeks on the USC campus, where they will receive:

  • Personalized career exploration
  • Expert admission and financial aid support
  • Comprehensive test preparation
  • Leadership development

This year, the summer intensive runs from July 15, 2024 through August 3, 2024. To visit the website for more info, click here.

We offer the program at no cost to students or families. USC will pay for transportation to and from campus for students coming from outside of Southern California.

Applications are due January 12, 2024, at 5:00 pm PST.
