Graduate Loan Funding

Suffolk offers a broad range of loans to eligible students. You are encouraged to connect with the Office of Student Financial Services to discuss your options.  Additionally, you are encouraged to apply for financial aid as soon as you submit the application for admission. You should not wait until you have received an offer of admission to apply. 

U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents may file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) any time after January 1 of the year of enrollment. Be sure to list Suffolk's FAFSA code:  002218

Merit Scholarships

All applicants (US Citizens, Permanent Residents, and International Students) are automatically considered for merit-based awards at the time of admission. There is no separate application to be considered for a merit award. Awards generally are based on prior academic achievement, work experience, standardized test scores, and fit in the program. Please note that Suffolk only provides institutional funding for one graduate program; students returning to complete a second graduate program are not eligible for merit scholarship consideration if they received funding for their first degree.
Merit-based assistance is awarded to students entering in the fall and spring semesters. No merit funds are available for students who begin in the summer term. Students should apply by the priority application deadline for the best chance of getting a merit award.
