If you are only applying for federal loans, please submit the FAFSA by April 15. You do not need to submit the CSS Profile.

Please note: If you were accepted to Tufts and did not apply for financial aid, you are not eligible for institutional aid in subsequent years. If your family experiences an unanticipated change in financial circumstances, you may submit an aid application for review. In some cases, limited funds may be available.

Deadline Policy: Students who complete applications after August 1st will be ineligible to receive Tufts grant aid for the fall semester and may be considered for spring aid if funding remains.
