First-Year and Transfer Students: Getting Your Tentative Financial Aid Posted to Your Account

Boston University Need-Based Scholarships

Your eligibility for Boston University scholarships and grants listed on your award notification as “tentative” must be confirmed before funds can be posted/credited to your student account. The confirmation process involves BU Financial Assistance checking the information reported on your CSS Profile and FAFSA against your income tax or other documents. Learn more about the confirmation process here.

Federal and State Financial Aid

Your eligibility for federal and state financial aid listed on your award notification may need to be double checked if the US Department of Education selected your FAFSA for verification. Learn more about the verification process here.
