All returning families applying for tuition assistance for the 2018–19 school year must have uploaded their FY 2016 tax documents. FY 2017 tax documents must be submitted as soon as they are filed—on or about April 15, 2018. A tuition assistance application cannot be reviewed unless the FY 2016 tax documents have been submitted. It is not necessary to re-submit FY 2016 taxes if they have been filed as part of the prior year's application. When uploading tax documents, please include the tax filing year in the name of the file.
Importantly, tuition determinations are not final until you have submitted tax information for 2017. If the information on your 2017 return differs significantly from your PFS, tuition may be adjusted accordingly.
Notification of tuition determinations will be mailed on the same schedule as admission decision letters—in February and March for returning Brandeis families, and in March for prospective families.
You can submit documents online or by mail. Your application will not be complete until you pay the application fee to SSS NAIS. When submitting documents by mail, be sure to include the Required Documents Cover Sheet from SSS.
