Student Loans for Simmons College Students

About Simmons College

Simmons College StudentsLocated in Boston’s scenic Back Bay Fens, Simmons College is a private, women’s undergraduate college that offers an intimate liberal arts education. With fewer than 2,000 undergraduate students enrolled, Simmons really captures the feel of a small liberal arts college; on the flip side, it’s located right in the middle of Boston, one of the greatest college towns you could find. The combination of these two aspects makes Simmons a truly unique school.

Going to Simmons is unfortunately a rather expensive endeavor, and living in Boston can get pretty pricey as well. Don’t let these high costs get you down, though—just remember, and especially if you’re on Simmons College financial aid, that it’s important to keep yourself on a budget. Only spend your hard-earned cash on things you really need.

Simmons College Student Loans

student-aidWhile Simmons is general with disbursing financial aid, their aid program is not able to meet the need of all of its students. For this past year’s freshman class, out of 335 applicants for aid, 307 were judged to have need and subsequently offered financial aid; however, only 35 students had their full need met, and on average 68% of a student’s need was covered. Furthermore, 50% of the student body has private student loans, as their financial aid packages fell short of covering their total need.

If you are in a position where your financial aid package was not sufficient to cover your college costs, first turn to federal loans and ‘free money awards,’ like scholarships and grants. After exhausting these sources of funding, you should turn to private student loans to cover the financial gap.
