What Is the Cost of Attendance?
Probably less than you think.
Why? Because BU meets 100% of demonstrated financial need for all admitted, first-year students who are US citizens or permanent residents. Each family’s circumstance is unique and BU will create a custom package for you to meet your family’s full demonstrated financial need.
We firmly believe that everyone admitted to BU deserves the opportunity to attend BU. We’re offering expanded financial aid packages of scholarships, grants, low-interest student loans, and Work-Study that will make up the difference between the cost of attendance and what you can afford. That’s why it’s so important for you to consider applying for financial assistance—even if you think you may not be eligible.
- 100% of need is met for first-year students who are US citizens or permanent residents.
- $290 million in financial aid is awarded annually to undergraduates.
- For students who receive aid, the BU Scholarship Assurance guarantees your BU need-based aid will not be reduced for any of your undergraduate years at Boston University.
Each year, the Board of Admissions awards the Presidential Scholarship to our incoming first-year students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement. In addition to being among our most academically talented students, Presidential Scholars demonstrate excellence beyond the classroom and are leaders in their schools and communities. This $25,000 tuition scholarship is renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study at BU.
How to Apply
No additional essays or application forms are required. Students who wish to be considered for the Presidential Scholarship should submit their application and supporting credentials by December 1.
