new | CE Student Loans
In striving to accommodate the changing needs of our students, all BAC Professional & Continuing Education students are now eligible to use loans to help fund their studies. “Private” or “Alternative” loans change from lender to lender, so it is important to research a number of options to see which one works
best for you. Check www.simpletuition.com for a list of lenders that will help finance your P&CE courses at the BAC. The loan process takes time, so in order to secure your loan for upcoming classes, all students are strongly encouraged to apply with their lender of choice a month before the start of classes. Students who apply for loans after those dates or who would like to secure their seat in class at an earlier time must pay for classes with a credit card to be refunded upon receipt of the loan.

For any questions, please contact BAC Financial Aid at 617.585.0125 or the Professional & Continuing Education Department at 617.585.0101.

new | Half Price Tuition
Graduates of the Boston Architectural College degree programs and certificate programs can take any Professional & Continuing Education, Landscape Institute or Sustainable Design Institute courses at fifty percent of current tuition price*.
