Students who apply and are accepted to these programs retain their undergraduate financial aid status in their senior year while beginning their graduate studies. Once a student in one of these programs has graduated and earned their BA degree, they are enrolled as a full-time graduate student for their fifth (or fifth and sixth) year and pay the graduate tuition fee for the program. Please note that graduate tuition rates differ from undergraduate tuition rates. Current graduate tuition rates can be found here.

Students enrolled in these programs are eligible to apply for graduate scholarships and fellowships in the spring of their senior year. If awarded, any graduate scholarship or fellowships received will be applied towards the fifth (or fifth and sixth) graduate year(s) only.

For information about financing the fifth (or fifth and sixth) year of your graduate education, please visit https://www.sarahlawrence.edu/financial-aid/graduate/
