Assumption Coronavirus Financial Aid Relief Fund

The Assumption University Board of Trustees have authorized the creation of a $3 million fund to assist current students and incoming members of the Class of 2024 whose families are facing financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This Fund demonstrates our commitment to provide additional financial resources for students, including members of the incoming Class of 2024, to pursue and achieve an undergraduate degree from Assumption regardless of financial challenges during this unpredictable time.

Resources from this special fund will increase the Assumption financial aid of eligible students with a demonstrated need for the 2020-21 academic year as follows:   

  • New need-based room grants of up to $8,500
  • New need-based tuition grants of up to $10,000

Applications for increased financial aid will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and one-year allocations will be awarded following a thorough review of the impact of the coronavirus on families’ finances.

Our dedicated financial aid staff is happy to assist families whose financial situation has changed significantly.  The Trustees and the entire Assumption community are committed to providing students the opportunity to begin, or to continue, their pursuit of a degree from Assumption.
