How Financial Aid is Determined

Financial aid is awarded based on demonstrated financial need as determined by the Lesley University Financial Aid Office. Financial need is the difference between Lesley University’s projected educational costs for an academic year and the Estimated Family Contribution number (Educational Expense Budget - Family Contribution = Financial Need) as determined by the completion of the U.S. Department of Education’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application each academic year.
