Tuition and Financial Aid


As of July 15, 2016, we will be switching to a new application system. If you have started a current application that hasn’t been submitted, please do so before July 15 to ensure your application is received. After this date you will need to restart the application process as we’re not able to convert partially completed files. As the July 15 deadline approaches, we strongly recommend new applicants wait until August to apply when the new application process will be live.

Financial Aid Programs


Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans are available to students with or without financial need. In addition, students who qualify can secure student loan financing through private lenders. Learn more about loan options.

Alternative Forms of Aid

Bentley offers merit-based aid to qualified graduate students in the form of scholarships, student employment and assistanships. These awards are based primarily on academic, professional and personal achievement, with consideration given to the contribution that each individual can make to the graduate school population — without regard to financial need. Learn more about merit-based aid programs.

Dean's Leadership Award Program

Working with leading diversity and corporate partners, the Dean's Leadership Award program is a unique scholarship fund designed to provide students with the opportunity to pursue a graduate education. Three awards are available each year to active members of participating organizations. These awards are made to academically excellent students who have a demonstrated commitment to leadership and social responsibility. Two full-tuition scholarships are reserved for qualified candidates accepted into the full-time Emerging Leaders MBA program and the 11-Month Bentley MBA (one award for each program); an additional half-tuition scholarship is made available for qualified part-time students accepted into the fall semester of any of our evening programs.
