Applying Electronically (preferred method)

A $75 application fee is required of all students who apply online. You will be prompted to pay via credit card immediately after submitting your application. Applications will not be reviewed by the graduate admission committee until your fee has been received and processed.

Applying via Hard-Copy/Paper Application

Please note that we strongly prefer applications to be submitted electronically. A $75 application fee is required of all students that apply via hard-copy or paper. Once the information from your paper application has been entered into the application system, you will receive an e-mail from our office prompting you to pay the application fee. Applications will not be reviewed by the graduate admission committee until your fee has been received and processed.

Fee Waivers

Current or former members of the following populations/affiliations are eligible for fee waivers:

If you feel your current circumstances warrant a fee waiver for your graduate school application, please send a paragraph explaining your extenuating circumstances to Monique Howell (mhowell@brandeis.edu), Assistant Director of Financial Aid and Admission for the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Please note that fee waivers are approved on a case-by-case basis and not all fee waiver requests will be granted. This process should be completed before you apply online, as applications submitted online without payment will be placed in a pending file until a payment is received or a fee waiver is granted.
