Certificate Program Cost of Attendance

Your cost of attendance is NOT the amount you will be billed for by the college, but rather the estimated and reasonable cost of completing a full academic year at MassArt as a certificate student.

Your cost of attendance represents the maximum amount of financial aid you may receive for one academic year. Students should only borrow what they need to supplement other finances that they may have.

When you receive your financial assistance letter, your cost of attendance will be listed for you based on the following costs:

  • Tuition and fees payable to the institution
  • Art supplies and books
  • A living allowance

2019-2020 Estimated Cost of Attendance for Certificate Students (By Program Type)

Your estimated cost of attendance is determined by the Office of Student Financial Assistance based on your certificate program and the information that you provide on your FAFSA. Student Charges are based on the tuition cost per credit and the average number of credits taken in one academic year.
