Parents and Families

Suffolk is more than a university. We’re a community. And we’re committed to making sure our students’ academic, professional, and personal goals are recognized, nurtured, and achieved.

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. Plus, studying abroad 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 it's 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.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

We feel 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
    The Department of Education launched the 2024-25 FAFSA form and the FAFSA is now consistently available to be completed and corrected.
  • 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 $3,500 to support students participating in non-paying summer opportunities

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