Financial Aid

The Lesley University Financial Aid Office is a centralized student support service committed to helping students find ways to make higher education affordable. The Financial Aid Office assists students seeking financial aid consideration; coordinates various sources of funding at the federal, institutional, and private levels; and administers and develops programs of student financial assistance including several on-campus student employment programs.

The purpose of Financial Aid is to assist students in financing their education by determining eligibility for federal financial assistance. Our philosophy is to provide access and choice to students who, without such assistance, would not otherwise be able to attend Lesley University.

The Lesley University Financial Aid Office administers assistance in the forms of Merit Scholarships, Donor Scholarships, private scholarship searches, the Federal TEACH Grant, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Graduate PLUS loan programs. Federal Work-Study is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need as determined from information provided on the student’s financial aid application materials. It is important, therefore, that all information on the financial aid application is provided accurately and to the best of the student’s ability.
