Tuition & Aid

Pursue an Affordable Law Degree

Financial Aid at Suffolk Law is designed to assist students in meeting the cost of a legal education when personal and family resources may not be sufficient. More than 70% of law students receive grant or scholarship funds from Suffolk University, and 94% receive some form of financial aid overall. Suffolk Law participates in several financial aid programs to help finance the costs of a legal education, and our awards can include scholarships, grants, loans, fellowships, and employment.

When applying for aid each year, apply as early as possible after January 1st 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 Suffolk Law student, we look forward to working with you.
