In The College Application Process , What Is The Profile Report ?

The Profile Report is a need-based analysis report. Many four-year private colleges and public universities require this report to be filed in addition to the FAFSA application. This form is mainly used by private schools to differentiate need among financial aid applicants. The Profile registration is a one page form available on the WEB through the College Board at www.collegeboard.org or at your High School guidance counselor's office.
