2013-2014 Application Process for Continuing Students

Continuing students must reapply for financial aid each academic year. The deadline for continuing students to submit All Financial Aid Application Materials is May 6th, 2013.

Late financial aid applicants may be penalized by having some of their Columbia grant eligibility replaced by additional work. If you have extenuating circumstances that will delay completion of your financial aid application, please contact our office before May 6 to request a deadline extension.

Students may check the status of their application materials online via SSOL Financial Aid System Online. Continuing student award letters will not be available until July, 2013.

Please include our COVER SHEET with all documents to insure proper coding and filling.

CSS Noncustodial Profile (Only required if your parents are divorced, separated, or were never married.) and Noncustodial Tax Returns

If you indicated on the CSS Profile that your parents are divorced, separated, or were never married, your non-custodial parent will need to complete the CSS Noncustodial Profile. You will be sent an e-mail containing a link and login instructions for the Noncustodial Profile website that you will need to forward to your noncustodial parent for completion by May 6.

Please have your noncustodial parent forward to Columbia their 2012 Canadian and Provincial tax returns or Mexican income tax return as soon as it has been completed, (including all schedules, T-4 forms, and any business returns), preferably no later than May 6.

If you think there will be difficulty in meeting this deadline, or if you have an unusual or complicated situation, you must contact the Columbia financial aid office to discuss your extenuating circumstances.
