We realize that financing a Curry education can be a challenge. We offer the following options to assist you in financing your Curry College education.
We encourage you to apply for federal need-based financial aid prior to applying for a private education loan. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to have eligibility determined for and receive an actual financial aid award that includes - federal grant, loan or work study assistance.
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.

Effective February 14, 2010, lenders of private education loans are required to collect a completed and signed Self Certification Form from the student prior to disbursing the loan proceeds to the College. To assist you in completing the information necessary for SECTION 2: COST OF ATTENDANCE AND ESTIMATED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE of the form, you can login to your myCurry account to view individual information. Private education loans include all Alternative Loan, as well as the Massachusetts No Interest Loans programs. Individual lending institutions may have their own procedures to comply with this regulation, so you should contact your lender directly if you have specific questions about the process for submitting this form.
Important Note: Your loan funds cannot be paid to the College to settle your student account balance if you do not submit the completed and signed Self Certification Form to your lender.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) enacted August 2008 amended the Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) establishing private education loan disclosure requirements about loan terms on or with the loan application and lenders must also disclose information about lower cost alternatives like federal student loans. Additionally, once the loan is approved and finalized for disbursement, additional disclosures must be provided. These regulations were passed to ensure that borrowers of private education loans have the necessary information to make informed choices about financing products to fund educational costs. These regulations apply to all private education loans but not to loans under the Federal Title IV Loan Programs (Stafford, Perkins and PLUS). We are providing a model Private Lender Agreement (PLA) Form as an example of what your lending institution is required to share with you upon borrowing an educational loan.
We encourage you to start early in the planning your educational financing so you do not experience delays in receiving your education loan proceeds. Under these amendments, you, the borrower will have additional responsibilities as a loan borrower including acknowledgement of the disclosure statements and completion of the Self-Certification Form. We encourage you to check with your lender to ensure you complete all necessary paperwork. Also, we invite you to contact the Student Financial Services Office if you have any questions about these requirements.
