Tuition and Financial Aid
BUA recognizes that all families make sacrifices to afford their children the opportunity of a BUA education. We also acknowledge that some families in our community may be experiencing financial hardship currently as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. BUA offers semi-annual and monthly payment plans so that families may space out payments over the course of the year. The school has also earmarked emergency assistance funds as a supplement to the general financial aid budget. This financial help may come in the form of tuition assistance or grants that may be used to meet a family’s basic needs. Enrolled families should contact Director of Financial Aid Paige Brewster (617-358-3440; firstname.lastname@example.org) if they have concerns about their ability to afford next year’s tuition, and if they would like to learn more about the options available.
2020-2021 Tuition and Fees: $48,832
Tuition and fees do not include incidental expenses, books, or lunch.

Cost Benefits and Financial Aid at BUA
Our financial aid program is designed to help make a BUA education accessible to qualified students who otherwise could not afford the cost of attendance. Financial aid is offered in the form of need-based grants, which do not need to be repaid. Where possible, the Financial Aid Committee does its best to meet 100% of a family’s demonstrated need.
