Financial aid can help you pay the costs of attending Massasoit including tuition, fees and books, and other related educational expenses such as estimated room and board and transportation costs. We award millions of dollars in federal, state and institutional funds each year to eligible students. Nearly 60% of Massasoit students receive some sort of financial assistance, so we encourage you to apply.
Massasoit Community College will attempt to provide financial assistance to all students with demonstrated need as indicated by the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). All programs are administered without regard to race, color, handicap, religion, sex, national origin or age.
The information links on this page will provide an overview of the financial aid programs and financing options available at Massasoit.
Part Time/Full Time
Students can be enrolled either full or part time and be eligible to receive financial aid funds.
