Tuition and fees are charged by term at the time of registration and are subject to change without notice. Full-time students typically enroll in 12-15 credits per semester. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain any books and supplies required for each course. The College bookstore, Barnes & Noble, can provide these items. Textbooks average in price from $100- $300 each. Book rentals are available. Supplies for special programs may also be purchased through the College bookstore.
Acquire an estimated amount to be charged for tuition and fees.
The payment due date for the individual terms is posted when registration opens for the term.
Electronic invoices are emailed to students’ email account accessed through the MyMassasoit portal.
Generally, the due date for the fall term is the end of July and the due date for the spring term is the end of December. Students should check their portal account for the exact dates.
Prior to the semester beginning, students who fail to make payment by the due date of their invoice will be dropped for non-payment. Notifications are sent via email to the student’s MyMassasoit email account.
Students who anticipate utilizing financial aid to pay their bill, should consider placing FA Course Protection on their account. FA Course Protection protects the student schedule from dropping for non-payment. Students may enable this option while they are providing requested documents and awaiting their tentative financial aid award letter from the Financial Aid Office. By enabling FA Course Protection, students agree to be financially responsible for their tuition and fees, should it be determined that they are not eligible for financial aid or their award is not sufficient to pay the entire balance.
Enabling FA Course Protection on the account is much like the other functions available within the portal under the Self-Service-Student section. Students would simply select FA Course Protection from the list of options, read the agreement and click submit. A confirming email is sent once the FA Course Protection has been placed on the account. In the event it is determined that the account is not eligible for FA Course Protection, the form will indicate the reason for ineligibility.
Many tasks related to student accounts can be completed through the MyMassasoit web portal. The portal can be accessed from any internet-capable computer by clicking on the MyMassasoit link at www.massasoit.edu. Students sign in using their Massasoit username and a password. The initial password defaults to the student’s birth date in mmddyyyy format. For example, if you were born on June 2, 1988, your initial password would be 06021988.
During the initial login, students will be prompted to select a new password. For security purposes, the system will automatically log off after 15 minutes of inactivity. Please contact the Massasoit IT Help Desk at x1139 if you encounter any problem logging into the portal.
Registered students can make direct payments safely and securely to the College online through MyMassasoit web portal account under View my account & make a payment option located under the Self-Service-Student section.

Massachusetts law requires Massasoit to charge a health insurance fee to matriculated students enrolled in nine credit hours or more. We are currently offering a policy through Gallagher Koster. You may review the plan particulars.
Students may elect to waive this fee if they have comparable coverage. Students can process a waiver through their MyMassasoit web portal under the Waive student health insurance option located under the Self-Service-Student section.
Students wishing to utilize financial aid to purchase the student health insurance policy must complete an authorization process through their MyMassasoit web portal under the Self-Service-Student section and Authorize Title IV Aid for misc. charges.
Often students obtain tuition assistance from third parties. These agencies may include the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, AmeriCorps, various insurance agencies or their employers.
Students electing to utilize this option must submit a letter of intent or a purchase order from the agency, on the organization or company’s letterhead, indicating their commitment for payment. The letter should specify the student’s name, the term to be sponsored, the maximum amount of the sponsorship and the name and address of the contact person to be invoiced. Letters of intent must be received by the payment due date for the semester.
Students must understand they are ultimately responsible for payment of their tuition and fees. If we are unable to secure payment from the sponsoring agency, then the student will be invoiced for any amount due.
