Continuing undergraduate students must reapply for financial aid each year. The 2023-2024 priority deadline for continuing student applications is April 1, 2023.
Documents can be uploaded securely using the Secure Document Upload.
Additional forms may be required. Links to application instructions and supplemental forms can be found below.
Step 1: Complete the 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our FAFSA school code is 002124. All applicants for financial aid must complete this form, which will be used to determine your eligibility for federal and state aid. If you do not wish to be considered for Bentley need-based aid, you may complete the FAFSA only. Please let us know if you will not be completing the CSS Profile.
Step 2: Complete the 2023-2024 College Scholarship Service PROFILE. Our CSS code is 3096. Applicants who wish to be considered for Bentley need-based funding must complete this form.
Step 3: Submit parent 2021 federal tax returns and W-2s and/or 1099s. Tax returns must be physically signed and include all schedules (Sch 1, 2, 3, C, E, F). Financial documents should be uploaded through the Secure Document Upload above.
Step 4: Once a FAFSA is submitted, a financial aid checklist will be generated showing the status of required documents. This is available on Workday under the Personal heading, Documents tab. Be sure to continue to monitor your checklist as additional items may be requested during our review of your application. Review our list of Supplemental Forms that may need filing (e.g. for parents who own a business or real estate other than their home).
