Haverford College Codes
- Profile or College Board Code: 2289
- FAFSA or U.S. Department of Education Code: 003274
To be considered for Haverford College financial aid, you must:
Both forms are available as of October 1, 2017.
The CSS Profile application is used to determine eligibility for Haverford Grant funds. The FAFSA is used to apply for all Federal grant and loan programs, including Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), the Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program, and the Parent PLUS Loan program. The FAFSA is also used to determine eligibly for work-study funds.
Students should only complete the CSS Profile if they are seeking Haverford College aid.
Make sure that social security numbers are correct and consistent on both the FAFSA and the CSS Profile.
Both forms will require the student’s and parents’ income information from Calendar Year 2016. Asset information requested on the forms should be reported as of the date the applications are completed and signed.
Financial Aid awards are contingent upon the accuracy of information provided in the application forms. Students and parents are obliged to report to the Financial Aid Office any changes in personal or family finances (such as changes in income, assets, siblings in college) and any subsequent award of aid from sources other than the College.
Applying for financial aid is a joint venture of both applicants and their parents; please be sure that all parties have read and understood the instructions.
Anticipated Change in Income During the Academic Year
If your parents anticipate that their 2018 income will be significantly less (i.e. by 10% or more) than their 2016 income, they should request a 2018 Estimated Income Form from the Haverford Financial Aid Office. Please note that this same anticipated loss of income should also be reflected in the 2018 Expected Income and Benefits section of the Profile, with an explanation for the loss reported in the Profile’s Explanations/Special Circumstances section.
After the CSS Profile is submitted, students will receive instructions from the College Board on how to submit tax returns and other supplementary forms using the Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC). No tax forms should be sent directly to Haverford.
The College Board will collect all forms at no cost to students’ families, and forward them via a secure server to Haverford College and any other college the student is applying to which has also contracted for the IDOC service. The College Board will provide instructions and a cover sheet for students to use to send the documents to IDOC. If students need additional copies of the cover sheet, or have questions about the IDOC service, including the status of their account, they should call IDOC at (305) 420-3688.
Send to the College Board's IDOC Service
