Funding Your Future at Mason
Did you know that 88% of 2021 Mason graduates reported achieving a positive career outcome within six months of graduation? Or that 86% were employed in the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., area with a median salary of $70,000? A Mason education pays, and our Office of Student Financial Aid is ready to help you figure out the best way to fund your future here.
If you’re a prospective freshman, the first and most important step to securing funding for your education is submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 1. If you’re ineligible for the FAFSA, you can complete the Virginia Alternative State Aid Application (VASA) instead.
