For some students, you may believe that you cannot find support for food or other needs. Other concerns may focus on tuition bills, or family situations. Our team is here to support you, and there are resources available to students who are experiencing financial emergencies.
The Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) considers financial aid appeals for undergraduate students based on extenuating circumstances (e.g., job loss, significant unreimbursed medical expenses, etc.). Scholarship and/or loan funds may be available for such circumstances. Our counselors will be glad to meet with you to discuss these options. To schedule an appointment, please contact our office at 781-736-3700. For other emergency needs, please see below.
