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

We suggest that you review the plan coverage to determine if it meets your needs. Visit the Tuition Insurance page to learn more.
