Types of Financial Aid

Our Undergraduate financial aid package is a combination of need based grants from federal, state and institutional resources, academic or merit awards, along with self-help aid such as loans and Federal Work Study. Based on the information provided on the FAFSA and on the tax returns provided to our office, we will determine the financial need of the student and meet as much of that need as possible with a combination of Lasell College funding, federal and state funding from both grants and loans, and with Federal College Work Study. Academic awards are determined separately.

State Aid

Several states in the New England region offer state grants or scholarships that may be used while attending Lasell College. Most states use the FAFSA information to determine eligibility for this funding, and most have deadlines by which the FAFSA must be received for processing in order to qualify. If a student misses this deadline, Lasell College cannot make up for the loss of this funding in the financial aid package. It is advisable to file the FAFSA as soon after January 1st of each year as possible in order to ensure consideration and eligibility for all forms of financial aid. Students hould consult the FAFSA instructions for the specific deadline for their state of residence. Regionally, the following states have reciprocal agreements with Massachusetts:

  • Connecticut
  • Rhode Island 
  • Vermont
  • Maryland
  • Pennsylvania

Massachusetts State Grant
Massachusetts residents must file the FAFSA by May 1st of each year in order to be considered for the Mass State Grant. If a student is eligible for this funding, it will appear in the financial aid package. 

Gilbert Grant
Gift aid funded by the State of Massachusetts. Students who are Pell eligible students and meet Massachusetts state residency requirements are considered for this funding.
