NESA/Tufts Pain Management Program
New England School of Acupuncture has entered into an agreement with Tufts School of Medicine which will impact student billing and financial aid application/awarding procedures for students in the Combined Masters' Program in Pain Management, hereinafter called the Combined Program.
Effective for the 2010-11 academic year students who declare Tufts as their track at NESA and who have been accepted for the MS Pain Research, Education & Policy program at Tufts will be billed for their Tufts courses through NESA. All tuition and student fee payments will be made directly to NESA.
Tufts' per-credit tuition rate will apply for the TUSM courses and NESA's per-credit tuition rate will apply for NESA courses. In addition, the respective student services fees for Tufts and NESA will be charged to the student's account.
The NESA Financial Aid Office will administer all financial aid for students who are enrolled in the joint program. Students will apply for financial aid as would other students at NESA. Costs for both programs will be considered in evaluating a student's need for assistance.
NESA students will have equal opportunity as TUSM students when applying to the TUSM MS-PREP program for scholarship funding.
