UMass boosts financial aid to students

Institutional aid to UMass students has more than doubled in the last few years, from $68.4 million during the 2006 fiscal year to $169.2.

UMass students borrowed or were awarded $763.7 million in all forms of financial aid in 2013. University officials say more than 64 percent, or almost 27,000 in-state students, received need-based aid in 2013. Caret has also asked campus leaders to begin taking steps to make it easier and more convenient to graduate more quickly to reduce student debt.
