Financial Aid Information

Anyone applying to college during their senior year who intends to seek financial aid, must go to this website to fill out the free application for federal student aid.

Dear students and Families of Seniors:

Please read this important information from Maura Healey, The Attorney General of Massachusetts, to better understand financial award letters.

Last week, Attorney General Maura Healey launched an education campaign to help students and families in Massachusetts better understand financial aid packages offered by colleges. In particular, we have a new hotline for students to call and online resources to help them better understand their financial award letters.


Students and families with questions or concerns about financial aid award letters should call the Student Loan Assistance Unit’s hotline at 1-888-830-6277 or visit our website:
