Financing Your Education         

William James College is dedicated to assisting students in achieving their professional and career goals. Each year, William James College awards over $1.4 million to students in the form of direct grants, on-campus employment and teaching assistantships. Approximately 40% of our field placement positions are compensated. William James College is a proud participant in the Veteran’s Administration Yellow Ribbon Program and provides matching grant assistance to eligible veterans. William James College is a participant in Title IV Federal Direct Student Loan Programs. For more information on the Federal Student loan program, please go to www.studentloans.gov. We also sponsor a variety of private or alternative loans for our International citizens and for those who may want to expand their options. If you are interested in looking at or applying for an alternative or private loan, please go to www.elmselect.com.

A fundamental principle of financial aid is that a student’s first resource to meet educational expenses must be his or her own earning capacity and assets. William James College will make every attempt to bridge the gap between personal resources and program expenses.

Our staff is ready to assist you with all aspects of the financial aid process, including application processing, budget preparation and management of education loans. We are available by appointment for one-on-one consultations as needed. To schedule an appointment, please call 617-327-6777  x1524 or email hilary_baxter@williamjames.edu.
