Accepted Students, Start Here

Congratulations on your acceptance to Lasell University! To receive your Lasell University Award, estimated financial aid offer, or confirmed financial aid offer – please select one of the options below.

Accepted students who submit a FAFSA will receive their confirmed financial aid offer within 2 weeks. You also have the option to complete a brief pre-FAFSA questionnaire to receive an estimated financial aid offer. If you do not intend to complete a FAFSA, please let us know within the pre-FAFSA questionnaire so that you can receive your Lasell University Award.

If you have filled your FAFSA application you DO NOT need to complete the Pre-FAFSA Questionnaire.

Complete the FAFSA for a Confirmed Financial Aid Offer

By completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will be automatically considered for all forms of need-based financial aid offered by Lasell and the federal and state government. Lasell University FASFA Code: 002158.

Lasell’s Priority Deadline is March 1. If your FAFSA is received after this date, your eligibility for some federal or state aid programs may be limited or rejected.

To maximize your eligibility for aid, be sure to apply by the appropriate deadline for your state of residence. For Masschusetts residents, the FAFSA should be completed and submitted no later than May 1 in order to be considered for Mass Grant funding.
