How to Apply for Financial Aid

Application Process

All students who wish to be considered for any form of scholarship or financial aid must first complete The Boston Conservatory’s Application for Admission

To become eligible for federal financial aid, students are required to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The recommended date for FAFSA submission is March 1. 

You should file the FAFSA electronically at www.fafsa.ed.gov by February 15, two weeks prior to the recommended date. The hard copy FAFSA should be mailed at least four to six weeks before the recommended date. You do NOT have to have filed your tax return in order to fill out the FAFSA. You may use estimated income information to make the deadline and make corrections later.

Federal Code Number

The Federal Code Number for The Boston Conservatory is 002129.

Scholarship and Financial Aid resources may be awarded individually or in combination, depending on the applicant's needs and qualifications. While the Conservatory is unable to meet the financial needs of all who apply, every effort is made to distribute funds as equitably as possible so that the greatest number may benefit.

New students must apply to the Conservatory by no later than December 1 and should have the Free Application for Federal Student Aid processed by March 1. Scholarship and Federal Financial Aid notifications are mailed along with the Admissions Office notifications.

Returning students must have the Free Application for Federal Student Aid processed by May 1. Scholarship and Financial Aid notifications are mailed in mid June.

Students who are applying for Conservatory Scholarships only do not have to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
