The CSS Profile and financial requirements and deadlines for each school are provided in the Financial Aid section of the Information page. These will now be translated into the application plans so that you don't have to look up the dates or requirements when tailoring application plans for your students.
If a school requires the CSS Profile and your organization has the CSS Profile milestones in the organization default application plan, then the college application plan created will now include the correct CSS Profile deadlines. This is true for the institutional, state and all international financial milestones as well. If no special deadline is provided by the school, then the deadline will be set to the same as the application deadline. If a school does not require the CSS Profile, or other financial milestone, then those milestones will not be included in the application plan.
Best practice is to include both the regular and priority CSS Profile milestones in your organization template. Similarly, include other financial milestones that your students regularly require. Go to My Account to check your default milestones by adding the milestones and be sure the save the updates on the table!
A Note on Existing Application Plans
This change will only affect the default settings for new application plans. If you already have an application plan created, but want to pull in the CSS Profile milestone and deadline, you can use the "Reset to Defaults" button - or you can use the "Add New Milestone" button. Please note, resetting your application plan will delete any additional milestones you have added or changed.
