BU Financial Aid Reminder

We would like to remind you that Boston University's deadline for financial aid applications is February 1, 2018. We encourage all students and their families to explore opportunities for financial assistance.  
Boston University requires applicants to file certain forms:
  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 
  • CSS Profile?
  • Please note that if the applicant's parents do not share the same household, the parent the applicant does not live with must also complete a CSS Profile. If getting that parent to complete a Profile will be impossible, applicants 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 stepsthat must be taken to complete their financial aid applications. 
Students who apply for financial aid by February 1 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 or 617-353-2965. I truly appreciate your help in making this important information available to your students.
We are hosting a virtual information session on Tuesday, January 9 at 5:00 p.m.Eastern Standard Time to answer questions about the financial aid application process. Please encourage your students and their families to attend.
