Documents can be uploaded securely using the Secure Document Upload.

Secure Document Upload

Additional forms may be required. Links to application instructions and supplemental forms can be found below.

Application Process

Step 1: Complete the 2022-2023 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 2022-2023 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 2020 federal tax returns and W2s. 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 "personal" and "documents." 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).

Financial Aid Awards

If your financial aid application is complete, it will be reviewed and you will receive an email and instructions when your award is available. We begin posting awards at the end of June each year.
