Student Loans
If you are a current Brandeis undergraduate and qualify for loans as confirmed by your financial aid advisor in Student Financial Services, a notation is added to your financial record to prevent you from being dropped from your courses before loan funds are received.

Working closely with the Financial Aid Office, we will seek confirmation that you have completed all steps to qualify for loan funding.

Brandeis Employees or Dependents Receiving Tuition Remission.

If you or a family member is eligible for tuition remission, please submit the Human Resources approval forms at your earliest convenience.

Employees enrolled in Summer School courses should submit their forms to the University Registrar either in person or electronically to Please be sure to provide contact information should additional data be needed to establish a new student record.  The Registrar’s Office will forward submitted forms to the Summer School

Dependents seeking tuition remission should submit their forms electronically by sending them to

In all cases, the Summer School will submit completed tuition remission forms to Human Resources.   A single point of contact will insure prompt approval and application of appropriate credits.

Please note that the tuition remission benefit does not cover the $50 registration fee or course fees (studio art fees, lab fees, etc.). Employees are responsible for paying these fees. 

Payment Extensions

Students seeking financial aid, whose families are making a withdrawal from a 529 investment account, using a wire transfer or applying for tuition remission, may request a payment extension.  In all cases, documentation of the payment methods is required.

A copy of the request for 529 payments and a receipt for a wire transfer are required.  For students seeking financial aid, we will be checking with financial aid officers to confirm that all loan forms have been completed.  The Summer School will retain a copy of all tuition remission requests.  Failure to provide documentation in a timely manner will result in canceled enrollments.

Questions Regarding Payment

You are encouraged to work with your student to obtain information regarding their Summer School enrollments and payments.   The Summer School will be limited in what it is able to share in accord with the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
