Parents and Families

Suffolk is more than a university. It’s a community where students’ academic, professional, and personal goals are recognized, nurtured, and achieved.

Experiential learning powers the Suffolk experience. Our faculty members impart the academic insights and soft skills employers value most. Your student will graduate with the knowledge and know-how to lead a career that matters. 

And thanks to Boston, Suffolk students enjoy everything from face time with C-suite executives to internships with the city’s premier institutions to world-class arts, history, and sports. Pretty much everything to see and do in our safe, beautiful city is within walking distance from campus.

Your student’s education here will be truly global. Suffolk students learn from and with their international classmates. Studying abroad—at institutions including our own Madrid Campus—challenges them to think in new ways, adapt to the world around them, and discover a new level of confidence, as well. 

Please know that your student will find a warm welcome here. We’re proud to be a nurturing home for students from all backgrounds. And help is never far away, thanks to campus resources that focus on every aspect of the student experience. 

Now's the time to take the next steps in your family's journey to Suffolk! We look forward to helping you make your way to our extraordinary community.

The Suffolk Community

Scholarships and 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 grants, loans, and work-study opportunities, including both merit- and need-based aid to eligible students. 

You can use our Net Price Calculator Tool to find out what may be available to help finance your education. Last year at Suffolk, 95% of first-time, full-time students received grant/scholarship aid.

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