Scholarships & Financial Aid

We believe a quality education should be available to every student, so we offer a broad range of financial aid solutions including scholarships and grantsloans, and work-study opportunities, including both merit- and need-based aid to eligible students. 

  • We automatically consider applicants for merit-based scholarships, which can be found in your acceptance letter.
  • Need-based aid is awarded in the weeks following your merit-based award. To apply for need-based aid, make sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before the recommended filing dates using our school code, 002218.
  • Last year, our average financial aid award was $25,313.
  • Overall, Suffolk granted $89 million in undergraduate financial aid to our students last year.
  • We proudly offer a $1,000 scholarship specifically for qualified incoming first-generation students enrolling in college for the first time. This award is in addition to any other merit- or need-based aid received.
  • Internships are an integral part to students' growth and future careers! That's why the Center for Career Equity, Development & Success now offers stipends of up to $3500 to support students participating in non-paying summer internships.

For more information, you can visit the Student Financial Services page, where you can also schedule an appointment with your counselor.
