You first want to complete the CSS PROFILE to apply for Babson’s need-based grants and scholarships. Babson’s CSS PROFILE deadline is November 15 for Early Decision and Early Action candidates and February 1 for Regular Decision candidates (full deadlines for incoming students are below).
Here are things to keep in mind when filling it out:
- Be sure to include Babson College (#3075) on your list of schools.
- For students whose parents are self-employed or own a business or farm: You will be asked about the income, expenses, assets, and liabilities of your business. After submitting the CSS PROFILE, please upload a copy of the most recent year’s business tax return to the College Board’s Image and Documentation Service (IDOC). Step 4 has further information.
For students whose parents are separated or divorced: You and your custodial parent (referred to as “Household A”) should complete the CSS PROFILE. Under “Additional Parent Application,” please provide an email address for your noncustodial parent (referred to as “Household B”), and the College Board will forward information on how your noncustodial parent should complete his/her section of the CSS PROFILE. If you already have submitted the CSS PROFILE and need to add another parent, you also can add this information on the applicant’s dashboard. Babson College believes that the primary responsibility for paying for college lies with the student and family. In the case of divorced or separated parents, we expect each parent to complete the CSS PROFILE. However, if there are extenuating circumstances related to your family, you may submit a CSS Profile Waiver Request for the Noncustodial Parent. Submission of the waiver request doesn’t guarantee it will be approved. Review the instructions on page one and upload the waiver and any supporting documentation to the College Board’s Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC). Upon receipt, we will review the information provided and follow up with you via email.
