Financial Aid for Graduate Students

We recognize the fact that financing a graduate education is a significant investment for students and their families, but especially in today’s economy, an advanced degree just might be your ticket to a stable career.

While it is the responsibility of the student to pay college expenses prior to the beginning of each semester, Elms College is aware that many families may require financial assistance. Completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) enables you to begin financing your graduate education.

Financial aid is not renewable, so students must reapply for aid each academic year.

Applying For Financial Aid

A complete financial aid application consists of the following:

  • A completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal FAFSA. The Elms College code for FAFSA is 002140. If you have provided the Elms College code, the Department of Education will forward an electronic copy of your completed FAFSA to the college. Students may apply on-line at studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa.

The financial aid office reserves the right to request additional information.

Determination of Financial Aid Eligibility

All students must be accepted for admission to Elms College before aid eligibility will be determined and awarded. Financial need has no bearing on your admission to Elms College.

Graduate students are eligible for unsubsidized loans through the federal loan program only. For additional funding options, information regarding alternative students loans is available at www.elmselect.com.

Feel free to contact us with questions about your financial aid and payment options.
