Cost of Attendance

If you apply for financial aid and are accepted to MassArt, you’ll receive a personalized COA in your Offer Letter in Financial Aid Self Service that lists:

  • Tuition and fees payable to MassArt 
  • An estimate for housing and food for renting an off campus apartment
  • Books, course materials, supplies and equipment, including the cost of a computer (for
    incoming students)
  • Transportation
  • Miscellaneous personal expenses

We calculate your COA based on your residency status as well as the information you provide about your living arrangements. If your living arrangements change, please notify the Office of Student Financial Assistance so we can update your COA.
