Veterans Financial Aid Information

At Quincy College, there is the option to use federal financial aid along with the use of your VA education benefits. This is not a requirement to attend school. We just wanted our Veteran students to know that this is an option that is available, many veteran students who are not fully covered by their VA education benefits tend to use Federal Financial Aid to help cover the gap of where their benefits leave off.

Federal Financial Aid will not negatively impact your VA education benefits and will not be included in your overall cost of attendance when the Financial Aid department awards you the financial aid award. The Federal financial aid award can consist of federal grants and federal subsidized and unsubsidized loans. To learn more about federal financial aid, click here.

Steps to use federal financial aid:

Step 1

Create FSA ID

Step 3

Keep an eye on your email from any communications from Quincy College financial aid office. Once the school receives the FAFSA the financial aid office may request additional documents needed for processing the application.

Step 4

Submit any requested documents to the financial aid office at Quincy College

Step 5

Once awarded your federal aid you will need to complete the Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note online through

Steps to use federal financial aid:

Quincy College processes FAFSA applications as received on a daily basis. The college’s priority deadline is May 1st annually.  To fall in line with the deadline for MA State Aid Deadline.

Processing Time frames are 4-6 weeks, however, this depends upon a student’s responsiveness in submitting additional required documentation for processing. FA packages can be completed as early as 2 weeks from when the FA application is received.

Students who have submitted the FASA but have outstanding requested documents for awarding their aid will be contacted on a weekly basis by a FA counselor via email.

What does an Award factor in?

When the federal financial aid is awarded, the award will be based on your overall cost of attendance. Below is what the average COA is for a full-time and halftime student.

Books and supplies Annual $ 2000.00 Full-time and $1000.00-part time

Room and Board: $10,000 per Year flat built into COA, however, the campus does not own or operate a housing facility for students. ($5000.00 per semester)

Transportation Costs: $1600.00 per year and is the flat amount not based on enrollment ($800.00 per semester)

Misc. Allowances in COA: $2360.00 per year based on enrollment ($1180.00 per semester Full time) Amount is prorated if the student is enrolled in under 12 credits.

Tuition is based on the number of credits and program. On average the tuition budget for a full student with 12 credits is $3000.00 per semester.
