Boston University Financial Aid Information

Dear Colleague:
We would like to remind you that Boston University's financial aid application deadline is January 2, 2019. We encourage all students and their families to explore opportunities for financial assistance.
Boston University requires applicants to file two forms:
  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • CSS Profile
    • Please note that if a student's parents do not share the same household, the parent who does not live with the student must also complete a CSS Profile. If getting that parent to complete a CSS Profile will be impossible, the student must submit a CSS Profile Waiver Request for the Noncustodial Parent.
We offer several Tips for Completing the Profile and FAFSA on our website. Please encourage your students to read the acknowledgement emails they receive from the Profile and FAFSA processors after filing these forms. These emails may include additional steps that must be taken to complete their financial aid applications.
Students who apply for financial aid by January 2 can expect to receive a financial aid decision with their admission decision in late March.
If you or your students have questions about Boston University's financial aid process, please contact BU Financial Assistance at finaid@bu.edu or 617-353-2965. I truly appreciate your help in making this important information available to your students.
Sincerely,
Julie Wickstrom
Executive Director of Financial Assistance
P.S. We are hosting a Financial Aid online chat on Tuesday, December 18 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to answer questions about the financial aid application process. Please encourage your students and their families to attend.

RaiseMe and PSATs

Hey there, happy Wednesday!

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are having a nice to start to the week. We know that students' scores for the PSAT will be released next week and wanted to let you know that we made this lesson plan to help your students interpret their scores.

Having your students add PSAT scores to their RaiseMe accounts is a great way to show your students that their hard work is paying off AND will motivate them before winter break! If you didn't see our last note, we also launched a parent portal where your parents can monitor the progress of their students over the holidays :).
