Notice of Changes for the 2017-2018 Application Process
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and CSS PROFILE have been available online as of October 1, 2016 and will be completed using 2015 tax information as opposed to 2016. We strongly encourage the use of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, if possible, when completing your FAFSA.
We will also collect 2015 Federal tax returns and W2 forms. If a student already has 2015 tax forms on file from their 2016-2017 application, they will not need to be resubmitted. The Financial Assistance office will roll all complete tax forms from the previous year to your 2017-2018 application. However, students should still continue to monitor their email, mail, and MyBentley accounts as additional documents may be required.
The new priority deadline for continuing student applications is April 3, 2017.
Continuing undergraduate students must reapply for financial aid each year. All application materials are due April 3. You can check the status of your financial aid application on the Finances Tab of your MyBentley account.
Please follow these instructions on how to complete your application. Be aware that additional information may be required after your information is initially submitted and reviewed.
Financial Aid Awards
We will no longer be mailing continuing students a hard copy of their financial aid award letter. If your financial aid application and all supporting documents have been received by our office, you will receive an email when your award is ready to view. To view your award letter log into your MyBentley account. We will begin posting awards at the end of June each year.
