Paying for college can seem overwhelming, but rest assured we’re here with experienced, personal assistance every step along the way. More than 90 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid. Through a combination of scholarships, grants, and loans, we will help place a college degree within your reach.


When planning for college costs, the following is a starting point. The Net Price Calculators (left) provide a further estimate, but are also for planning purposes only.

IMPORTANT: In addition to the fees, all students carrying 9 credits or more are required to have health insurance. To enroll in the Elms College plan, or to submit a waiver with proof of other insurance, go to www.universityhealthplans.com.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for full-time and part-time programs. You must be enrolled in at least six credits to be eligible for federal student loans. If you are eligible for federal financial aid, the amount of aid you receive will be determined by the number of credits in which you’re enrolled.  There are only two steps to apply for financial aid:

  • Apply for Enrollment
  • Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Completing the FAFSA requires both time and access to income tax returns. The Elms College federal school code is 002140. Our staff is available to guide you through that process. Once the FAFSA is complete, your side of the process is done! We will assemble an individualized aid package for you.

Additional information can be found online through the  Federal Student Aid YouTube Channel and studentaid.gov

Of course, if you can’t find the answer to your question using any of these resources or you’re not entirely clear on something we encourage you to contact the Financial Aid Office directly.
