The forms and links on this page are organized for each phase of financial aid management:
- Current + Enrolled Students
- Former Students + Alumni
All international applicants (graduate and undergraduate) and domestic undergraduates seeking any CIM need-based aid consideration must submit the CSS PROFILE by February 15 for the academic year. We do not require the CSS PROFILE for domestic graduate student applicants.
CIM's PROFILE code is 1124.
For more details about the PROFILE, please see the CSS Profile Guide. International students please submit all financial data in your home currency, as the PROFILE will convert all funds to US dollars.
Some students may be required to complete the Federal Verification Worksheet (Dependent) or Federal Verification Worksheet (Independent). Only complete the applicable form if the CIM Financial Aid Office requires you to do so. The CIM Verification Policy and Procedures are found, here. Please also find the Identity and Statement of Educational Purpose form, here.
Start your FAFSA online. CIM's School Code is 003031
Applicable to U.S. citizens and permanent residents (green card holders) only and is required for ALL U.S./permanent resident applicants seeking any need-based aid (federal/state grants, work study, loans). The FAFSA is required each year a student seeks any federal student aid consideration and eligibility may fluctuate year to year.
One to three business days after filing a FAFSA online, you should receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). Only the SAR indicates if you have a valid, completed FAFSA
Students who may receive outside/private support are required to notify CIM by completing the Outside Scholarship Information Form. This is applicable for funds that will be sent to CIM directly from the funding source or if the funds are paid directly to the student.
The Special Circumstance Appeal Form is applicable for FAFSA students who have changes to the data that was submitted into the current year FAFSA, such as loss of income, divorce, medical expenses, etc. The Financial Aid Committee will review submissions on a case by case basis within two weeks. Generally, a conversation with the Financial Aid Office is recommended before submitting this form. Questions? Email email@example.com.
The Transfer Clearance Form is required of any applicant who will not have completed their current program at another school before enrolling at CIM. Also required if you have previously deposited and signed an Intent to Enroll Form with another school, such as if you are wait-listed at CIM, and accepted another school's offer. This is required for any scholarship or aid award, whether the student seeks scholarship only or need-based consideration as well.
