In order for BU Law to equitably distribute our scholarship funds, we require that applicants file parental information. Although many parents do not contribute to their children’s graduate education costs, they may still be a resource for some students. Thus, viewing the potential family contribution as a whole is the fairest and most accurate way to award need-based aid.
An applicant may submit a written, detailed request for a waiver of parental information prior to the March 1 filing deadline. Waivers are granted on a case-by-case basis, at the discretion of the Office of Financial Aid. Requests should be addressed to the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid.
