Renewing Your Financial Aid

To renew your financial aid for your 2L and 3L years you must complete the two applications below each year. Deadline: April 15, 2017

The FAFSA can be completed as early as October 1.  You may use federal tax return information from 2015 to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA. The IRS has a data retrieval tool to help with FAFSA filing.

If the Student Aid Report (SAR) sent to you by the federal processor indicates that your processed FAFSA was selected for Federal Verification, then our office will notify you in writing of the requirement(s) and any documents that you must provide to us. In addition, you will be required to complete, sign, and send to our Financial Aid Processing Center the Grad/Law Verification Form that can be accessed here. Please note that you should not complete the Grad/Law Verification Form if your FAFSA was not selected for federal verification.

A Boston College Law School Financial Aid Application/Validation Form must be completed each year. Applicants must complete every question on this form. If a question does not apply, note "N/A" in the space provided. If questions are left blank, your application will be returned to you for completion and this will delay the review of your file. Any special circumstances you would like us to consider may be addressed in either the Special Circumstances section or on an addendum included with the application. We recommend that you copy your application for your records prior to mailing it.

Please mail the BC Law School Financial Aid Application/Validation Form and any necessary tax forms to:
