Office of Student Financial Services

Approximately 85% of MCLA students receive some form of
financial assistance.

Many ways to pay for college


When you complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) you automatically apply for a wide range of state, federal, and MCLA assistance, such as Pell Grants, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants, MASS Grants, the College Work Study Program, Perkins Loans, and Federal Direct Student Loans. You can learn more about how to apply for financial aid here.

If you haven't already, review the estimated annual costs to attend MCLA. Especially given the opportunities a quality MCLA education provides, it's surprisingly affordable.

Looking for something more personalized? Based on the information you provide, our Net Price Calculator can tell you the price of attendance that students similar to you paid after financial aid.

We are pleased to announce the creation of the Office of Student Financial Services, which combines the offices of Financial Aid and Student Accounts! This exciting opportunity addresses services relating to the most pressing financial concerns of our students and their families. This new venture will allow us to provide a more seamless experience for students and families between the two departments and ensure that they are able to successfully complete all stages of applying for federal and state financial aid, obtaining aid, processing student refunds, and processing payments to their student account. This combined effort will enhance our ability to counsel students on the financial aid process, provide information about funding, and service as point of contact for student account-related questions. Student Financial Services is located on the lobby level of Eldridge Hall (same location of Financial Aid and Student Accounts).
