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 form.  This form allows us to determine an applicant’s eligibility for Brandeis funded aid, as well as providing us with estimated eligibility for both federal and state 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 form.  Applications received after the stated deadlines will only be considered for grant or scholarship if funds remain available.
