Funding Your Graduate Education
Because we strive to keep our graduate tuition and fees reasonably priced, many of our graduates incur little to no educational debt. If needed, you can use a combination of the following methods to fund your graduate education.
Employer Reimbursement and Tuition Remission
Some employers may reimburse you in full or in part for job-related courses or offer you tuition remission benefits. Check with your employer's personnel office for details.
Full-time employees of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are eligible for 50 percent tuition remission. Forms are available through your employer and must be presented at the time of registration.
