Financing Your Education

At Bay State College our mission is to make education accessible, relevant, and valuable. We design academic programs to be transformative—to take you from where you are and help you get to where you want to be. We understand that your starting point, particularly your financial situation, may not be where you want it to be, and that is the unfortunate irony of going to college to get ahead. How can I improve my financial situation through education when I don’t seem to have the resources to get started? 

The answers to this question vary somewhat for each individual. Our admissions team and financial aid office work with you to find pathways to make college affordable and reach your goals. In addition, all of our programs are designed not simply to help you land a job, but also position you with a meaningful and rewarding career. In fact, Bay State College recently earned a #6 ranking of the north regional colleges for social mobility by US News and World Report.
