Application Requirements and Deadlines

In order to simplify the application process, Brandeis requests that entering first year undergraduate applicants initially file only the College Board/Financial Aid PROFILE and the FAFSA.  These forms allow us to estimate an applicant’s eligibility for both Brandeis and federally-funded aid.  However, you may apply for just federal and state aid by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (https://fafsa.ed.gov) only.

Please contact us at (781) 736-3700 or sfs@brandeis.edu if you have any questions or concerns about filing the PROFILE or FAFSA forms.  Applications received after the stated deadlines will only be considered for grant or scholarship if funds remain available.
