Please note that all matriculating students must make a tuition deposit, regardless of any expected financial aid. Tuition and housing deposits are non-refundable, but are applied against your tuition and housing charges. We will continue to accept deposits on a space -vailable basis if we receive your deposit after 10 business days from your admissions decision.
APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID
If you haven't applied for financial aid, it's not too late. Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at fafsa.ed.gov. Make sure to include MassArt's school code on your application: 002180.
If you completed a FAFSA, you should have received a Student Aid Report (a multi-page document called the SAR); review it to confirm that MassArt also received a copy of this date. If MassArt is not listed, contact MassArt's Office of Student Financial Assistance. In some cases, you may need to provide additional documents after the FAFSA has been filed; Learn more >>
If you completed the FAFSA, but do not receive a financial assistance letter within seven days of your admission decision (if you submitted your FASFA by October 15), please check with the Office of Student Financial Assistance to be sure that they have your social security number on file and the your financial aid application is complete. If you did not complete the FAFSA but wish to apply for financial aid, please do so as soon as possible. International students are not eligible to apply for federal financial aid at MassArt, however, they may apply for a private student loan with a U.S. co-signer.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance.

If you are a transfer student currently enrolled in college, you must make sure to have your final college transcript sent to the Office of Admissions as soon as possible after the semester ends.
A preliminary transfer credit evaluation was included with your decision letter. If you are currently enrolled in classes please submit an updated college transcript with your final semester grades, course descriptions and updated artwork (if you're seeking studio credits) to the Office of Admissions. Once this information is received, the College will evaluate any new coursework and send you an updated transfer evaluation within 3-4 weeks. Please note that additional transfer credit is not likely to change your entrance level; however, you may be awarded additional liberal arts, history of art, or studio electives.
STUDENT ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES
MassArt is committed to making college a successful experience for all students, including those with documented disabilities. If you have a disability that you believe might stand in the way of your best performance at MassArt, staff at the Academic Resource Center (ARC) are available to assist you.
