The requirements listed above are for individuals interested in both federal and institutional need-based assistance.  The CSS Profile & prior year business tax information is not required for those families only interested in federal financial assistance.  Also, none of the requirements listed above have to be submitted if families are only interested in merit-b​ased assistance.

Please make sure your applications are in on time, are complete and signed where appropriate. Any incomplete information could cause a delay in the receipt of your financial aid application(s) and could impact the amount of aid you are eligible to receive.  Using estimated financial information is acceptable when completing your initial aid applications. Although we do encourage families to estimate the best they can, it is equally important that your applications be received at Providence College by their deadlines. Your award will be tentative based on your estimated figures and then confirmed once we collect and verify your final tax information.

Once your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has been submitted and processed and the U.S. Department of Education has sent you a Student Aid Report (SAR) please read the comment section very carefully. If there is an issue with the application (i.e. missing signature, citizenship confirmation) it will be outlined in this section and these issues must too be resolved by the deadline in order for the application to be considered on-time.
