I’ve already applied. What’s next?

Now that you’ve applied for financial assistance, here are some resources to help you get a little closer to achieving your goals at Boston University.

Your Financial Aid Application Status

Applicants and Admitted Students

Set up your Boston University Web Account through the Applicant Link to view application requirements and your aid application status.

Enrolled Students

Currently enrolled students can use the Student Link to access:

  • Financial aid application status
  • Financial aid award status
  • Student employment information

Entering students are emailed instructions after their enrollment deposit is received explaining how to upgrade their Web Account access to include the Student Link. Enrolled students should contact the Information Technology office to establish a Student Link Web Account.

Reply/Accept Your Award Offer

Aid recipients are encouraged to accept their award packages online. Please allow 3 to 5 business days before checking your application status to confirm that your reply has been updated to your financial aid application record.

Admitted Students

Admitted students can accept their financial aid packages through the Applicant Link.

Enrolled Students

Currently enrolled students can reply to an offer of financial aid through the Student Link.

Entering students are mailed instructions by early June explaining how to upgrade their Web Account access to include the Student Link. Enrolled students should contact the Information Technology office to establish a Student Link Web Account.

If you reply to your financial aid offer online, please do not also submit a paper copy.
