To request a BU Sargent College need-based scholarship:

    For Students Applying to a BU Sargent Graduate Program for the first time

    • Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)* online by April 1. The correct version for the fall semester will be available after January 1. Do not submit parental information on the FAFSA. A graduate student is considered independent for federal financial aid.
    • Use Boston University’s institutional code number for the FAFSA: 002130.
    • Download, complete, and mail the Sargent College Graduate Application for Financial Assistance by April 1.
    • If you are under 24 years of age, send a signed copy of your parents’ most current tax return. Tax returns may be submitted after you’ve received your Sargent College acceptance letter, but no later than April 1.

    For Current BU Sargent College Graduate Students

    • Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)* online by March 1. The correct version for the upcoming academic year will be available after January 1. Do not submit parental information on the FAFSA. A graduate student is considered independent for federal financial aid.
    • Use Boston University’s institutional code number for the FAFSA: 002130.
    • Download, complete, and mail the Sargent College Continuing Student Financial Assistance Application to the Sargent College Graduate Financial Aid office (Room 217) by March 1.
    • If you are under 24 years of age, send a signed copy of your parents’ most current tax return by March 1.

    *Note: You will need a Federal Student Aid Personal Identification Number (PIN) to complete your FAFSA. If you do not have your PIN, you can apply for one or request a duplicate if necessary at the Federal Student Aid website. You may have your PIN sent to you by mail or email. Keep it in a safe, accessible place — you’ll need it to renew your FAFSA online and to complete your online Master Promissory Note.
