If your parents are divorced or separated:

  • Both of your biological/adoptive parent(s) will complete their own CSS Profile with different log-in credentials. It is highly recommended that the student and custodial parent start the CSS Profile first, as the non-custodial cannot submit information until the student selects a school that requires the submission of non-custodial parent information.
  • Your non-custodial parent must submit the online Non-Custodial Profile after creating a separate College Board account.
