Financial Aid

The Office of Student Financial Assistance at Massachusetts College of Art and Design is committed to helping students and their families get the resources needed to fund each student's education, ensuring that access to a chosen field is not limited by the cost of attendance.

The college offers a wide range of options for financial assistance so that all students interested in attending MassArt may do so regardless of their financial means.

Financial Aid is a time-sensitive process, so please be sure to consult our important deadlines page and submit all forms and materials in a timely manner to be sure you can be considered for all possible aid opportunities for which you are eligible.

Financial Aid is available for Undergraduate, Graduate, and Design Certificate students, so long as they are eligible. Learn more about how to apply for financial aid and the general eligiblity requirements.
