Application Requirements

  1. Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)*

* Note: The FAFSA is now available; however, FAFSA submission data will not be released to Hamilton until March. We will be able to estimate an award for admitted students based on the information available to us in the CSS Profile. Awards will be finalized after fees are set for the upcoming year and FAFSA information is reviewed and federal aid eligibility determined. 

International Students:
  1. CSS Profile Application
  2. Hamilton requires the Certification of Finances, available in your applicant portal, for all international applicants, regardless of whether or not you are applying for financial aid.
  3. Please view our International Student webpage for more information on applying for International Financial Aid


  • Hamilton utilizes the College Board's IDOC service for the submission of additional financial aid documents, such as tax information. After you submit the CSS Profile, you will receive an email from College Board with instructions on how to access IDOC.
  • We will notify the student, if during the file review process we determine that your submitted material(s) are incomplete and/or we require additional information.
