With the partial government shutdown inflicting economic consequences, Bay State College is working to support those in our community that may be impacted. Our commitment is to our students and employees and we will do our best to assist each and every unique situation. Please do not hesitate to reach out for assistance.

  • If you are receiving Federal financial aid or Pell Grants, the shutdown will not impact your funding. Federal financial aid for the 2018-19 school year was fully funded and money for Pell Grants is mandatory.
  • The Federal Student Aid Office is still up and operating, so students can still file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are having trouble accessing forms or necessary documentation, our financial aid team is available to help at financialaid@baystate.edu.
  • GI Bill® benefits have continued, but support for claims and assistance may be limited. Contact your financial aid representative if you have delayed payments or concerns. 
  • If your family's income has been affected by the shutdown, contact our student accounts specialist at 617-217-9036 to discuss your payment plan options.
