Paying for College Should Not Keep You Up at Night

Like most people, you probably have a lot of financial responsibilities. You may also have to sacrifice one thing, for another. We get that. We pride ourselves on offering affordable tuition so you don’t have to. We believe you can live and learn and not sacrifice one for the other.

In addition to offering low tuition rates, there a number of ways to cut down the costs of earning a credential. Here are just a few:

  • Transfer credits already earned (saving you time and money)
  • Get credit for experience (military, professional, testing)
  • Scholarships, Fellowships, Assistantships from UMass (or other organizations)
  • Employer Discounts and Employer Tuition Assistance (be sure to check with your employer!)
  • Tax Credit for those who may be eligible (Check it out here: IRS Information Center)


We are here to help you explore your options. Feel free to call us at 877-698-6277 or fill out a request for information form so we can connect you with someone who can help.
