Please note: To be considered for financial aid from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a FAFSA must be received by the federal processor no later than May 1 prior to the start of the academic year. While students may still apply for financial aid after this deadline, they will only be considered for federal sources of financial aid.
For financial aid purposes, the 2016-2017 academic year begins with the Summer 2016 courses and concludes with the Spring 2017 courses. To apply for financial aid, the following applications are required:
As students may be accepted and begin courses at various times throughout the academic year, financial aid applications are typically submitted prior to the start of the first term of enrollment. All required documentation, however, must be received at least two weeks prior to the end of the semester in which the student is applying for aid. Failure to do so may result in the application not being processed and the student being financially responsible for any charges on the account.
