Helping Students and Families Afford College

Based on the guidance of public health officials and the state government, the Office of Student Financial Services will be suspending in-person office hours due to COVID-19. We remain committed to supporting you and your family during this time and encourage you to contact our office by phone or email for assistance.

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.

SFS 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 this insurance to provide reimbursement when a student is unable to complete an academic term due to unforeseen circumstances, a covered accident, injury or other covered reason.
