Financial Aid for Early Decision and Early Decision 2 Applicants

At Boston University, applying for admission and financial aid as an early decision candidate tells us that you know what you want from your college experience and you’re passionate about pursuing your goals. That’s why we are excited to work with you and guide you and your family through the financial aid application process.

When it comes to college expenses, you can’t plan one year at a time. You need to plot out how you’re going to pay for the entire program, from start to finish. That’s why with the BU Scholarship Assurance, as long as your total aid doesn’t exceed the cost of attendance, your BU scholarship aid will be renewed at the same level each year – guaranteed – with no additional CSS Profile™ required.

Familiarize yourself with the Early Decision need-based financial aid application process, frequently asked questions, merit award information and helpful checklists.
