University Deposit

All undergraduate students are required to pay a $500 deposit when admitted. Beginning with the fall 2020 term, the deposit will be deducted from the first semester's charges.  If a student decides not to enroll at Brandeis University, the deposit will be forfeited.

For undergraduate students who entered the University prior to fall 2020, the University Deposit is currently being held in reserve for possible future punitive charges posted to a student's account, (i.e., unpaid parking fines, unpaid library fines, residence hall damage, returned check fees, etc.). The Statement of Account mailed and/or the Student Account Update emailed by Student Financial Services will reflect any transactions charged and paid for by the University Deposit.  Students who graduate, or withdraw from the University, prior to the fall 2020 bill will receive a refund of any unused portion of the deposit in June 2020.  Students who will return for the fall 2020 semester will receive a credit of any unused portion of the deposit on their fall 2020 billing statement.
