Financial Aid Deadlines

To apply for financial aid, you must complete the following forms:
  • FAFSA (use code 002124)
    All applicants for financial aid must complete this form, which will be used to determine your eligibility for federal and state aid.
  • CSS PROFILE (use code 3096)
    Applicants who wish to be considered for Bentley need-based funding must complete this form. Early Decision and Early Action applicants may also wish to complete the CSS PROFILE to receive an early financial aid award before the FAFSA is available. If you only wish to be considered for federal and state grants and Federal Stafford Loans, you do not need to complete this form.
