Part I: Simmons Offers a Powerful Return on Your Investment
You can afford Simmons. It's true. Contrary to what you might think, attending a top notch private college like Simmons doesn't have to be as expensive as it first appears. That's because the "sticker price,"the amount we publish as the cost for tuition, room and board, and fees, will probably differ from the amount you actually pay. In the end, finding the right college--not the one that at first appears most affordable--should be your top priority.

Simmons Financial Aid counselors work with students to explain tuition, payment plans, loans, and scholarships, and help them to manage the cost of college. Our diverse student body represents a healthy mix of socio-economic backgrounds--approximately 80 percent of students receive some form of financial assistance.

More than anything, college is an investment in you. Remember that no matter what college you choose, you should base your decision on value--the combination of cost, aid, scholarships, and expected return on your educational investment. Don't sacrifice your dreams, career and earning potential, and satisfaction in life by choosing a college based on cost alone. It's your future, and you're worth it.

    Simmons College has a very simple process for applying for financial aid. You only need to complete two forms.

    The first is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can find this information at:

    You will also need to fill out the 2012-2013 Simmons College Student Information Form, available on the Student Financial Services website.

    Once your forms are received, they will be reviewed by your Financial Aid Counselor and if needed, additional documents will be requested.
