Undergraduate Students

The Massachusetts College of Art and Design requires students to have 120 credits in order to receive the BFA degree. Students are allowed up to six years of full-time financial aid eligibility in order to complete this requirement.

The Office of Student Financial Assistance is required to review a student's academic record annually. To continue receiving financial aid, an undergraduate student, enrolled full-time each term, would need to comply with the following:

  • After one year, have completed 21 credits at MassArt.
  • After two years, have completed 42 credits at MassArt.
  • After three years, have completed 63 credits at MassArt.
  • After four years, have completed 84 credits at MassArt.
  • After five years, have completed 105 credits at MassArt.
  • After six years, have completed 120 credits at MassArt.

The credit figure is based only on credits earned at MassArt, and is pro-rated for less than full-time enrollment.

Graduate Students

Graduate students receiving financial aid must complete their programs within the maximum time frame of 3 years. Graduate students enrolled in the part-time (3-year) MFA-DMI program have up to 4.5 years of financial aid eligibility.

A review of academic credits attempted and completed will be conducted annually.

To continue receiving aid, Graduate students will be expected to complete at least 1/3 of the required credit load annually.

  • Fashion Design Certificate students receiving financial aid must complete their program within the maximum time frame of 1.5 years (3 semesters).
  • Graphic Design Certificate students receiving financial aid must complete their program within the maximum time frame of 2 years (4 semesters).

Students who fail to comply with the above will lose their financial aid eligibility.
