All U.S. citizens or permanent resident aid applicants must complete the FASFA. There is no processing fee and the FAFSA is required for all federal student aid eligibility. Although it is not necessary, we recommend completing prior year’s tax return before completing the FAFSA.
All U.S. citizens and permanent residents who wish to be considered for a Stanford GSB fellowship, and all international students who wish to apply for any form of financial aid including loans, must complete the CSS Profile Application online. There is a $25 processing fee. You are expected to provide information for yourself and, if applicable, your spouse (or prospective spouse, if you are marrying on or before January 15). Parental information is not required. We recommend completing your prior year’s tax return before completing your CSS Profile.
Copies of Your Country’s Tax Return
If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you will provide signed copies of your most recent completed U.S. federal tax return to the Financial Aid Office, including copies of all schedules and copies of your W-2 forms. If applicable, you will submit copies of your spouse’s information (or prospective spouse as well, if you are marrying on or before January 15).
If you are an international student, provide copies of your most recent tax statement from any and all countries in which you worked to the Financial Aid Office.
More details about submitting your tax forms will be available once you are admitted to Stanford GSB.
