An investment in a legal education goes beyond time spent in a classroom. Finding the resources necessary to achieve your educational goals can sometimes seem difficult, so it is important to be educated and informed concerning the costs and the application process.

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 80% of Suffolk Law students receive grant or scholarship funds from Suffolk University Law School, and 97% 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.
