Cost of Supplies

The estimate for books, photo supplies and equipment that each student will purchase while in attendance at the school is approximately $4,500 per academic year, but varies per individual student. This estimate is not part of tuition and is not paid directly to the school.

Net Price Calculator

In Compliance with U.S. Department of Education regulations, NESOP is required to offer its prospective students access to a Net Price Calculator (NPC), which allows you to determine an estimate of the financial aid for which you may be eligible should you attend the school. Please note that this is an estimate only and is based on 2014-2015 historical data; the estimate provides grant eligibility only and DOES NOT include your eligibility for Federal Title IV loans (Stafford and Parent PLUS Loans), state and/or private/alternative loan sources or outside scholarships. For a more accurate determination of your eligibility, please contact our financial aid office directly at 617-437-1868 or via e-mail at: npinnock@nesop.edu.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is defined as any (financial) assistance toward the cost of your education/attendance that is not being paid "out-of-pocket" by you. Financial aid includes grants and loans, and eligibility is different for each individual. The New England School of Photography offers financial aid to qualified applicants. Financial aid is awarded through the federal Title IV and Massachusetts State Student Financial Aid Programs. All financial aid is contingent upon completion of all financial aid requirements, full time enrollment and satisfactory academic progress as defined by the NESOP Professional Photography Program Guidebook.

  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
  • William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (Subsidized Direct Stafford Loan, Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan and the Direct PLUS Loan)
  • State Grants (coming directly from your state of residence; for Massachusetts residents, this is the MassGrant)
  • Massachusetts Gear-Up Scholarship
  • Federal Work Study
  • Private Loans (available to credit-worthy students who qualify; NESOP accepts all private loans where NESOP is an eligible school with the lender)

FAFSA: How to Apply

Determining your financial aid eligibility and applying for financial aid all starts with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. All potential applicants may apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The deadline for completion of this application is ongoing. It is highly recommended that all financial aid applicants complete their FAFSA applications concurrently with their Admissions Applications. By completing this form, you apply for assistance via the U.S. Department of Education's federal student aid programs. In some cases, the completion of the FAFSA also automatically submits your information for application to your state aid programs. You will need to identify New England School of Photography (NESOP) by its school code on the FAFSA form. NESOP's school code is 015273.
