Tuition Credits

A tuition credit is an award that will lessen the amount of your tuition and fees. While you may receive or be eligible for multiple tuition credits from a variety of sources, you will only be able to use one credit.

The Massachusetts Department of Higher Education Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) administers a variety of tuition credits. For a list of tuition credits made available by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts visit the OSFA website.
