To determine a student's financial need, the College uses two "needs analysis" tools, requiring a financial aid applicant's family to submit a PROFILE (Kenyon code 1370) to College Scholarship Service and a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (Kenyon code 003065) to the federal processor. Please consult the financial aid deadlines chart to determine the correct deadline for your PROFILE and FAFSA applications. The information provided on the PROFILE and FAFSA is analyzed using standard formulas. The result of the analysis is a calculation of what the family is expected to contribute toward the cost of attending Kenyon from parental and student assets and incomes. Please note that transfer applicants may be selected by the federal government for a process termed verification. If selected for verification, families must submit a Kenyon College Verification Statement(s), parent and student official IRS Tax Transcripts (given that the IRS Data Retrieval process was not successfully utilized through the FAFSA) in addition to the FAFSA and PROFILE. Need-based financial aid eligibility will be determined once all documents requested have been submitted to the Kenyon College Office of Financial Aid. The difference between what is determined that the student's family can contribute and the cost of attending the College is defined as the student's financial need. The need is then provided for by a financial-aid package. An estimate of your expected family contribution may be obtained here . This is only an estimate and relies primarily on self-reported information from the student and family.
