We're Here to Help
The Financial Aid Program at Suffolk University Law School is designed to assist students in meeting the cost of a legal education when personal and family resources may not be sufficient. Over 45% of Suffolk Law students receive grant or scholarship funds from Suffolk University Law School, and 85% receive some form of financial aid overall. Suffolk Law School participates in a number of financial aid programs to assist in financing the costs of a legal education and our awards can include a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, fellowships, and employment.
When applying for aid each year, remember to apply as early as possible after January 1st and to meet all deadlines. New students should not wait for an admission decision to apply for financial aid.
Whether you are a new or returning student, we look forward to working with you.
While Student Financial Services is open during normal business hours, we are practicing social distancing to keep our community safe and healthy.
If you need to submit a document to Student Financial Services, we offer a drop box located outside the Ram on the 6th floor of 73 Tremont which is monitored daily by staff.
We are also available via email or phone (617-573-8488). Staff are also happy to schedule individual meetings via Zoom. If you would like to schedule an appointment with your counselor, please contact him/her via email to arrange a time.
In-person services for financial aid are available at the Ram Center. To ensure we are able to maintain social distancing practices within the Ram Center, we invite you to reserve a time slot for in-person service online.
Office of the Bursar
All payments for tuition and fees, billing questions and inquiries on credit balance refunds should be made to the Suffolk University Office of the Bursar. You may make a payment online or contact the Office of the Bursar for more information.
If you need additional funding for law school, you should view our current outside scholarship opportunities. We add postings to this site as they become available, so be sure to check back frequently for updates.
