Boston University’s Financial Aid Application Deadline

Boston University’s deadline for financial aid applications is February 1, 2016. Students and families are encouraged to explore opportunities for financial assistance. Boston University requires two applications for financial aid consideration:


  • CCS Profile

The PROFILE and the FAFSA can both be filed online via the BU Financial Assistance website. After a student files these forms, the PROFILE and FAFSA processors will send email acknowledgments, which may include instructions on additional steps that must be taken.

Applicants who submit both the PROFILE and the FAFSA by February 1 can expect to receive a financial aid decision by early April. If you have questions about Boston University’s financial aid process, please contact BU Financial Assistance at or 617-353-2965.
