Is financial aid available for students participating in a summer JBS program? 

A limited amount of financial aid is available for JBS programs. You and your parents may also apply for private student and/or parent loans. 

For an estimate of your financial aid and program costs, please schedule an appointment with your financial aid advisor.

How will outside scholarships be affected/used for summer JBS programs? 

Most outside scholarships are applied in full to the academic year, and therefore, are not available for the summer.

How long do I have to enroll before the bill or registration/enrollment fee is due? 

To hold a spot on the program, students will be required to declare their intent for participation within ten days of acceptance. Once a student has declared their intent to participate and completed the required materials he/she will be automatically enrolled.  However, failure to settle any outstanding balance for the summer JBS program will result in an administrative withdrawal.

When are bills sent out to students for a summer JBS program?

Bills will be sent out in early May.

When are bills due for a summer JBS program?

The bill is estimated to be due in late May. Further details will be available shortly. 

Will the payment plan be available for summer JBS programs? 

No.  Due to the limited number of weeks in the summer JBS program, the monthly payment plan will not be available.

Does Reduced Senior Status apply to JBS?

Seniors who have completed all graduation requirements by the end of their 7th semester, but wish to remain at Brandeis for an additional semester, may petition to spend an eighth semester at the senior reduced rate.  If approved, this program will allow the student to take 1, 2, or 3 courses and pay tuition on a per course basis. Reduced Senior Status can not be applied to a JBS semester. However, students who enroll in JBS may be able to take advantage of reduced senior status in a future semester.
