Financial aid

Availability of financial aid varies depending on course status and matriculation. Check with your adviser to determine your eligibility and application procedures. Generally, if you are enrolled at least part-time (6 credits minimum per semester) in a degree program, you may qualify for financial aid.

The Financial Aid Services Office provides assistance in the processing of grants, scholarships, loans, and College Work-Study awards. It is also responsible for the coordination of all student employment on campus.

Student loans for the summer session are available to all UMass Boston students enrolled during the spring in an eligible degree or certificate program. Students should call or visit the Financial Aid Services Office for further details. All other students should explore aid possibilities with the financial aid offices at their own institutions.

Educational benefits offered through the Veterans Administration may be used during the summer session. Veterans should contact the Office of Veterans Affairs (Campus Center, 4th Floor, Room 4006) to determine their eligibility.

The Financial Aid Services Office is located in the Campus Center, 4th floor, 617.287.6300.

You can apply for The Career Training Smart Option Student Loan through Sallie Mae for the Alcoholism/Chemical Dependency Treatment Services Program. For other information on Sallie Mae loans, go to If you have further questions, call 617.287.7907.
