Financial Aid

We are committed to using all possible resources to put together an offer that makes sense for you — 95%  of our undergrads receive some form of Financial Aid. 

To apply for financial aid, students must complete a FAFSA on studentaid.gov. Once the FAFSA is complete, and the student is accepted into a program at Elms, we will assemble an individualized offer for you. Our staff is available to guide you through this process. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at 413-265-2249 or with your questions pertaining to the financial aid process.
