At the Curry College Student Financial Services Office, you'll find staff members who work exclusively with graduate students to provide the right advice, friendly service, and personal support. Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 pm. On Wednesdays, we are open 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. For more information, call (617) 333-2354. Students who wish to apply for Financial Aid must be admitted to a graduate degree program before their financial aid application will be considered. Students must maintain half-time enrollment to remain eligible for financial aid. *Effective January 1, 2017 the office will be open until 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.*
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 tuition and fee cost to the following indirect expenses when determining your eligibility for financial aid:
|Total Indirect Costs||$12,394|
Note: Indirect expenses are based on average costs expected for the academic year.
*Allowance is for those enrolled in 12 or more credits per semester. The Books/Supplies Allowance is adjusted based on your actual anticipated enrollment.
**This allowance is for students who do not reside in a parent's or relative's home.
Curry College's knowledgeable staff can help you understand your options for financing your education. You can apply for financial aid throughout the calendar year, but getting started early is important to help you meet the deadlines and qualifications.
If you are interested in applying for financial aid, take the first easy step by contacting the Curry Continuing Education Office nearest you and make an appointment with our advisor or request more information.
