Financial aid applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year. Students must be admitted to a degree program and must maintain half-time enrollment status (6 credits per semester for continuing education undergraduate students) in order to be eligible for Federal student loans. Federal Pell Grant funds are awarded to students with exceptional need who are pursuing their first bachelor's degree and are limited to the equivalent of six years of full time study. 

Institutional aid is not available for continuing education students, but you may be eligible to receive federal and state grants and student loans.  Students should file financial aid paperwork at least two weeks prior to the start of the term to allow time for processing.

There are also alternative non-federal loans available for those students who are not admitted to a degree program; for students pursuing certificate programs, for those taking courses but not intending to earn a degree, and for those enrolled less than half-time. Please visit the Student Financial Services Office or call (617) 333-2354.

If you are applying for financial aid, your financial aid award is determined by calculating your cost of attendance for the academic year minus your expected family contribution which is determined by your FAFSA information.  Your cost of attendance is comprised of your direct costs for tuition and, if applicable, any additional fees plus other indirect related education expenses such as books and supplies, living expenses, and transportation costs, etc.  The total of your direct and indirect costs equals your cost of attendance.

Your Financial Aid Counselor will estimate your total cost of attendance by adding your anticipated tuition and fee cost to the following indirect expenses when determining your eligibility for financial aid:

  • Books/Supplies* - $1,100
  • Room/Board** - $9,850
  • Transportation - $1,450
  • Personal - $1,200
  • Total Indirect Costs - $13,600

Note:  Indirect expenses are based on average costs expected for the academic year.

*Average allowance based on nine month enrollment in 12 or more credits per semester. The Books/Supplies Allowance is adjusted based on your actual anticipated enrollment.

**Allowances for living off campus .  If you reside with a family member it will be reduced to $2,200.

A deferred payment option is available to continuing education students who are pursuing a degree program and can demonstrate that they have a tuition reimbursement benefit through their employer or the government. Students who qualify may pay their tuition at the end of each course, rather than upon registration. Students in this category are responsible for payment, and tuition may not be left unpaid pending reimbursement by an employer or other agency. Please contact the Continuing and Graduate Studies Office for further details and to complete a Deferred Payment Request Form. The deferred payment option is not available for graduate courses but graduate students may inquire about a multiple payment plan by calling Graduate Studies Office at (617) 333-2243.

Direct billing is available for Continuing Education students who demonstrate that their employer or other organization will be paying the college directly for their classes. Students in this category may register upon providing appropriate documentation, such as a purchase order or voucher.

Online payments: Curry College partners with Tuition Payment Plan by Nelnet to process credit/debit card and checking/savings account payments online. Tuition Payment Plan by Nelnet accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard and VISA cards.
