2020-2021 Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is an estimation of the amount of money it could potentially cost you to go to MassArt for one academic year. It not only includes your tuition and fees, but also includes an estimate for living expenses, personal expenses, art supplies, and books.

If you apply for Financial Aid, your cost of attendance will be determined for you and may vary based on your residency status and your living arrangements (on-campus, off-campus, or living at home/with relatives). Your cost of attendance is the maximum amount of financial aid you may receive for one academic year.
