$150 Million in Financial Aid 

Each year we award more than $150 million in financial aid to our students. Financial aid funds are awarded on a first come, first served basis. 

Many Options

The federal government is the major source of financial aid. If you are a Massachusetts resident, you may also qualify for state financial aid funding in addition to a reduced tuition rate as a Massachusetts resident. UMass Boston and alternative private lenders are two additional sources of funds to help pay for college. 

Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). That is all you need to do to get started. 

Several awards are based on allocations and may not be available to all qualified applicants.
