confusion - a basic question on the application process

<p>Hello CC,</p>

<p>All this time, I thought the college application process only consisted of the application portion, then CSS profile (if required), the IDOC (if required) that follows, and filling out FAFSA.</p>

<p>But apparently that's not the end of it, is it? Some schools are asking me to fax federal tax documents and other such forms.</p>

<p>Well, no such email was sent requesting one (except one from USC), so for other schools I had to hunt for more financial aid information, only to find that some asked for these forms and some had no information on it whatsoever.</p>

<p>So to be clear, is this something that -all- schools require, or some?</p>

<p>If this is a noobish question, I apologize, but it's better to be safe than sorry! (:</p>


<p>After you send in the CSS, some, but not all, may ask you to submit additional documents. Also, with the FAFSA, a percentage of applicants will be selected for verification and may be asked to submit additional items.</p>
