Financial Information

Financial aid & scholarships

Need-based financial aid and student loans are not available to prospective international students.

As an international freshmen or international transfer student at UMass Dartmouth, you'll automatically be considered for the following scholarships based on your application and acceptance to UMassD. 

International Freshmen $10,000-$15,500 with a high school GPA of 2.75 and above 
International Transfers $10,000 with a transfer GPA of 3.0 and above

The merit scholarship is granted for a total of four years (eight semesters) as long as the student maintains full-time status (12 day credits each semester) and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 at UMassD. If the student drops below full-time (less than 12 day credits per semester) and/or falls below the required 3.0 GPA, the scholarship is permanently forfeited.
