Forms and Costs for Postgraduate Programs

Application Information and Forms

Postgraduate students who are US Citizens or Permanent Resident and who are enrolled in accredited post-graduate programs may apply for the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan and/or the Federal Direct Grad PLUS Loan to cover all or part of their yearly cost of education. Foreign students may apply for private education loan programs with an eligible US Citizen or Permanent Resident acting as co-borrower.

Students applying for Federal Direct Loans must complete the financial aid application requirements as outlined in the Post-Graduate Financial Aid Manual and summarized on the Post-Graduate Financial Aid Application Checklist. Please note that completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to be considered for these programs. Post-Graduate students should not include parent information when completing a FAFSA. The financial aid application deadline for Post-Graduate students is April 1st each year.  Students seeking private education loans should begin the process of applying for these loans by May 1st each year.

Educational costs for Post-Graduate Certificate Programs are included in the tables below. Please note that additional tuition charges apply to joint certificate programs with Masters of Science.

The following document list contains all necessary forms and instructions for post-graduate students applying for financial aid. Please refer to the Postgraduate Financial Aid Manual and Postgraduate Financial Aid Application Checklist for more complete instructions.

Cost of Attendance 

A student’s cost of education is made up of both billed costs (tuition and fees) and indirect costs (living expenses, books, and supplies). Students may receive financial aid up to (but not exceeding) their total cost of education each academic year.

Please note required travel allowances are usually included in students’ educational costs of programs that require off-site travel. However, these allowances have not been included at this time for 2021–22 due to university travel restrictions in place at the time of budget determination and uncertainty of future travel. Should this change, students may apply for financial aid to cover the cost of this expense.

Costs related to recommended off-site travel can’t be covered with financial aid. Students who may receive support from their governments may have additional restrictions for travel imposed by their government.

The living expense allowance portion of a student’s cost of education is determined based on a survey of currently enrolled students and the US Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics cost of living averages for the Boston metropolitan area. Currently, the living expense allowance is $2,700 per month. A more detailed breakdown of the components is available in the Student Loan Handbook. Information on housing options in the Boston area is available here.
