Financial aid applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will be based on the 2016 tax year. If you receive a letter requesting financial information, please ensure you are submitting documents from the 2016 tax year.
Financial aid award letters for continuing students will be released throughout the summer on a rolling basis. Receiving your award letter is contingent upon your application and all requested supporting documents being submitted and processed. Please check your MyBentley account for missing documents and contact our office with questions.
Welcome from Kathy Anderson, Director of Financial Assistance
Welcome to Bentley University!
Our office is committed to helping you and your family make your Bentley education an affordable investment. Our staff will work with you to review options available to you, which include scholarships, grants, loans and campus work programs. More than 70% of our students receive one of these forms of aid.
Our website contains a wealth of information about the process for applying for aid. We recognize that it can be time-consuming, potentially complicated, and occasionally confusing. We are here to help you throughout the process while you’re here at Bentley. We look forward to working with you.
FAFSA and CSS Profile applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will be available beginning October 1, 2018.
Please note that we do not subscribe to the CollegeBoard IDOC upload service, so we are unable to view documents that have been uploaded to the CSS Profile site via IDOC. In addition, we cannot accept documents via email that contain sensitive information such as social security numbers for security purposes. Please fax or send these documents via postal mail.
