Financial Assistance

     Students may be eligible to apply for financial assistance through Stafford Loan, Pell Grant, Massachusetts Grant Scholarship Program or Massachusetts No Interest and Low Interest Loan Programs.  Students may also be eligible to receive assistance from Employment and Training Resources in Framingham.

         Please Note:  Students receiving financial federal aid must choose one of Assabet's payment plan options  and will receive an individual tuition payment invoice for the balance of their payments based upon the payment plan chosen.

     For Return of Title IV and MA State Funds and further financial aid information, please contact Melissa Couture to schedule an appointment.  Miss Couture can be reached via email at mcouture@assabet.org or 508-263-9604.

NOTE:  For the first day of class students must have their own laptop computer containing a Microsoft Windows based operating system  and Adobe (Chromebook will not work).  Please review the student handbook for minimum requirements.


Pens, pencils, loose leaf notebooks, white stockings, white shoes, wrist watch with a second hand, and assignment notebooks will also be necessary expenses incurred by the student.

Student Expenses

The following estimated expenses are the responsibility of the student and any such other expenses as may be necessary for completion of the program.

Financial Aid Obligation

     Tuition payments are made in cash, official bank check or money order (made payable to AVRVSD), or credit card (click               to pay on-line by credit card).


     Assabet Valley's institutional refund policy is distinct and different from the Federal Return of the Title IV Funds Policy.  The school is required to perform a Return of Title IV Funds calculation for all Federal (and State) financial aid recipients who withdraw (officially or unofficially) from Assabet on or before the 60% point of the payment period.  Assabet has two periods of 500 hours each.  Students subject to the return of any Title IV funds may result in a balance due to Assabet Valley, the Federal Government or both.  After the funds have been calculated the school will return the funds to the following programs in the order listed:

1) Unsubsidized Stafford Loan Program,

2) Subsidized Stafford Loan Program,   

   3) PLUS Loan and 4) Pell Grant Program. 


     (It is understood that no program will have more money returned that originally disbursed.)  The student will have access to the refund amount and how it was disbursed.

   

   See Federal Return of Title IV Funds Policy for further explanation, which may be accessed by our Financial Aid Office.
