An education is a significant investment in your future. At UMass Global, we want every student to prosper and have the right all-around support they need during this important time in their lives. Financial aid may be available for degree‐seeking students who qualify.
There are many different kinds of financial aid including need‐based and non‐need‐based grants, loans, and scholarships. To establish eligibility for financial aid, a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form must be completed by the student for each year that financial aid is requested. UMass Global offers reduced tuition for active duty military, their spouses and family members.
