Tuition & Financial Aid

At Simmons, we understand that financing your degree is an important consideration and we are proud to offer merit-based scholarships to both full- and part-time students. All merit-based scholarships are awarded to students based on demonstrated academic achievement, managerial experience and leadership potential. Merit-based scholarships are awarded in two forms: Dean's Merit scholarships and Graduate Assistantships (GAs).

Scholarships are funded by proceeds from the Simmons Annual Leadership Conference and organizations such as Citizen's Bank and the Strategic Mindshare Foundation, as well as from numerous alumnae who have given back generously, many in their own name.

GAs require a 10-hour-per-week time commitment and are typically available in the areas of Faculty Research, Fundraising & Development, Marketing, and Admission.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents qualify for need-based financial assistance in the form of federal loans. A complete financial aid application includes the Simmons Application for Graduate Financial Aid and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
