Helping Students and Families Afford College

The Office of Student Financial Services offers assistance to students and families in paying for a Brandeis education.

In addition to providing instruction and counseling on applying for need-based financial aid, and determining eligibility for such funding, our office provides guidance on financing the cost of a Brandeis education via private student and parent loans and payment plans as well as information relating to bill charges, payments and federal student loans.

Student Financial Services Policy Changes in Response to COVID-19

Brandeis values our students commitment and has always partnered with a tuition insurance plan to help families to protect their education investment. GradGuard Tuition Insurance works to supplement the Brandeis tuition withdrawal refund policy to provide up to 100% refunds for medical withdrawals due to physical injury/illness and mental health conditions. You may wish to consider purchasing the optional GradGuard Tuition Insurance to provide reimbursement when a student can’t complete an academic term due to an unforeseen, covered accident, injury or other covered reason.

We also coordinate all hourly on-campus student employment and maintain an up-to-date listing of all available on- and off-campus job opportunities.
