In order to simplify the application process, Brandeis requests that entering first year regular decision 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 only.

Please contact us if you have any questions 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.

* Upon deposit to Brandeis, you will be asked to submit complete 2017 Federal Parent and Student Tax Returns (including any Schedules and W-2s) to verify the data provided on the Profile and FAFSA.
