    • If you haven't applied for financial aid, it's not too late. Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at Make sure to include MassArt's school code on your application: 002180.

      The Office of Student Financial Assistance begins sending financial aid award letters in mid-to-late March. 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 data. 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 by the deadlines and listed MassArt, but do not receive a financial assistance letter by early April, please check with the Office of Student Financial Assistance to be sure that they have your social security number on file and that your financial aid application is complete.

      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.

      All offers of admission to high school seniors are contingent upon completion of high school requirements and graduation with your class as scheduled. You are expected to maintain or improve your individual grades and grade-point-average during the remainder of your senior year. In order to confirm your official graduation, have your high school guidance office forward a copy of your final high school transcript to the Office of Admissions by June 30, 2022.


      If you have taken any Advanced Placement (AP) tests, please submit official scores to the Admissions Office as soon as possible. AP courses in which a student earned a score of a 3, 4, or 5, transfer to MassArt as studio electives, liberal arts electives, or History of Art electives. The only AP course equivalent to a specific, required MassArt course is AP Art History which is equivalent to HART-100 Intro to Western Art; an exam score of 4 or 5 is required to receive credit for this course.

      International Baccalaureate (IB) scores of a 6 or 7 at the higher level are eligible for transfer elective credit. Please submit official scores to the Admissions Office as soon as possible.


      If you are a transfer student, a preliminary transfer credit evaluation was enclosed 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.


      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.
