Undergraduate On Campus Tuition, Aid & Scholarships
Tuition The cost of a UMass Amherst education includes tuition and required fees, and if you live on campus, you will have a room and board and a meal plan charge on your university bill. Visit UMass Amherst Undergraduate Admissions for more information.
Scholarships More than $450,000 in scholarship aid was awarded to Isenberg School students last year through the Isenberg Undergraduate Scholarship Program. The majority of these scholarships are generously funded by alumni, members of the Isenberg School community, and business friends. These scholarships are intended to recognize the hard work and academic success of our students, as well as assist them with the expense of their education.
We encourage all current/matriculated undergraduate Isenberg School students who intend to return to UMass Amherst for the following academic year to apply to the Isenberg Undergraduate Scholarship Program. Please note that scholarships are primarily awarded to sophomore and junior students. Please review our comprehensive scholarship guide for more information.
Financial Aid In order to receive financial aid at UMass Amherst, it is up to you to seek it out. The first step in this process is to go to the Financial Aid website to check out the types of aid available. The next step will be to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. This is used to determine eligibility for federal, state, and institutional funds. Please remember that you need to complete this form (or the renewal version) every year that you wish to be considered for financial aid.
There are plenty of ways for you to help finance your college education. You can apply for scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study, or you may reach beyond UMass Amherst and get a part-time job in town. Just make sure you explore all of the possibilities through the office of Financial Aid, ask for help when you need it, and get all of the forms in on time.
Types of Aid A financial aid package for an undergraduate student may be comprised of different types of awards. Gift aid (grants, scholarships, tuition waivers) and self help aid (loans and work-study). More information
