Which parents do I include on my CSS Profile? What if my parents are divorced/separated?

All parents, stepparents, and parent’s domestic partners should be included in the Parental Relationships section of the CSS Profile application, at which point you will be able to indicate which parent(s) financial information will be included.

A student should include the parent(s) information who provide the majority of their financial support on their CSS Profile – the same parent(s) included on the FAFSA. Students whose parents are divorced/separated will have their noncustodial household parent(s) fill out an additional CSS Profile as a noncustodial parent if required by the institution(s) the student is applying to.
