Update on Financial Aid Services and COVID-19

In accordance with state and university COVID-19 guidance, Financial Aid Services is currently offering reduced counseling and customer service options.

Our office is currently closed to visitors and we are unable to receive incoming phone calls.  We are also suspending our office hours in the UMass Library Learning Commons, the Center for Multicultural Advancement and Student Success (CMASS), and at the International Programs Office (IPO) for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.

Alternative Loans

Before considering alternative loan options, you should first apply for federal, state and institutional financial aid, including federal student loans.  You should use alternative loans only as a last resort to pay for college costs. File a FAFSA first. Go to for more information.

Student Employment Office

The Undergraduate Student Employment Office (SEO) provides a listing service with a wide variety of student jobs.

Student Scholarships

Current and prospective students can search through a listing of scholarships that are independent of the FAFSA.
