Full-time graduate students are eligible to compete for graduate assistantships, which grant partial to full tuition remission. Serving in these positions, Graduate Assistants help faculty and administrators in a variety of research, educational and administrative activities. Assistantships are awarded for merit, based on criteria that include the candidate's previous educational achievements, GMAT or GRE scores, specific skills related to your contribution to the incoming class, and, if applicable, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score. Students that are awarded a GA will not be provided with a salary but will be taxed on the estimated hourly rate for their position.
A limited number of merit scholarships are awarded to new students and do not contain a work component in the award. Selection is also based on criteria that include the candidate's previous educational achievements, GMAT or GRE scores, specific skills related to your contribution to the incoming class, and, if applicable, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score.
Alternative Loan Programs
Bentley University participates in a variety of alternative student loan programs.
