Need-based Financial Aid

Some scholarships are awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. For consideration, you must complete both the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). International students who are not eligible to submit the FAFSA may still complete the CSS PROFILE to be considered for need-based scholarship assistance.

When you complete the FAFSA, list Vanderbilt University's Title IV Code, 003535. You may submit an electronic FAFSA or obtain a paper FAFSA form through a financial aid office at a college or university. The FAFSA should be completed as soon as possible after January 1.

When you complete the CSS PROFILE, list Vanderbilt Law School's code 5130. Parental information is required for all applicants age 25 or younger.

February 15 is the priority deadline for consideration for a need-based scholarship. We recommend all forms be submitted by this date. Submitting the FAFSA and CSS PROFILE forms by the priority deadline increases the possibility of receiving a need-based scholarship. Forms submitted after the priority deadline will be considered to the extent that funds remain available.
