After completing the CSS PROFILE, you may receive an email with a link to upload your tax information to the College Board IDOC website.

  • Check your DukeHub To-Do list to find out if you'll need to submit your taxes or other supporting documents to complete your application.  

And that’s it! Your DukeHub financial aid To-Do list is updated regularly, so be sure to check back often to make sure we have everything we need to complete your financial aid. Financial aid renewal notifications will become available to returning students in June.

Undocumented Students

To renew your aid, you will need to complete the CSS Profile. You may also need to submit tax documents (if taxes were filed) and/or income information to the College Board IDOC service. After completing the CSS Profile, keep an eye on your financial aid To-Do list in DukeHub. You may be emailed a link to upload your tax/income documents shortly after completing the CSS Profile.

The priority deadline for completing your renewal CSS Profile for 2022-23 is January 2, 2022. After that time, our office will continue accepting applications on a rolling basis. 


International Students

International students currently receiving aid will have their financial aid automatically renewed, and you do not need to reapply. Each year, new financial aid notifications will be available in the first week of April.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Note: International applicants admitted with "no financial aid interest" are ineligible to apply for financial aid for any year of undergraduate study.  There are no need-based or merit scholarships available for international transfer students.
