NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 situation, the U-M Office of Financial Aid is currently unable to receive materials by mail. Students are strongly encouraged to use the Document Upload Portal on Wolverine Access for uploading needed documents. If you have questions, contact the Office of Financial Aid by calling 734-763-6600 or emailing

REMINDER: If you download a fillable PDF form to submit digitally, please remember to save the PDF as a new, unique file after you’ve finished filling out the form. This allows you to submit a PDF with your information, instead of submitting the original (blank) PDF document.


Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (Use U-M Federal School Code: 002325). Complete this at no charge to be considered for federal student aid. U-M students should complete this each academic year.

Entering students complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE (Use U-M CSS Code: 1839) to be considered for institutional U-M grants.  (There is a cost associated with the PROFILE.  Please contact our office to request a fee waiver before submitting this form if you cannot afford this fee and are not offered the automatic fee waiver from the College Board.)

Special notes about the PROFILE:

  • The College Board offers a tutorial about the CSS Profile on its website that walks students and parents through changes to this year's form.
  • For families requiring non-custodial parents to complete the PROFILE: The prospective student must invite the non-custodial parent to complete this document as part of the PROFILE application process.  If you have questions, contact the College Board or email for assistance.
