Financial Aid Information

Each year, the Office of Financial Assistance administers nearly $88 million in financial aid to undergraduates, with more than 93 percent of a student’s need met with the average financial aid package. Our program makes the cost of attending Bentley competitive with most other private schools — and with the in-state cost of many public colleges.

Many students do not pay the full cost of attendance, once grants and scholarships are awarded.  Please use our Net Price Calculator, which is designed to provide an early estimate of financial aid for first-year students. We hope that this tool will help you navigate the college admission and financial aid processes.

Fall Financial Aid Information Sessions

Figuring out how to pay for college is a big decision, but it doesn't have to be a confusing one. That's why we’re hosting a series of Financial Aid Information Sessions on the Bentley campus this fall; to give you a better understanding of the financial aid process and paying for college.

Financial Aid Professionals will share advice and tips to better prepare you. Learn more about the application process, why the cost of attendance and your actual bill aren't always the same, the various loan options available, and more.

Register for a Financial Aid Information Session today!

The sessions will be held on Fridays at 3:30 p.m. in the Undergraduate Admission Visitor Center in the LaCava Building.  Campus tours are also available at 2pm for attendees.
