Scholarships & Aid

At Suffolk, we're committed to making a private education accessible to all students and that's why 95% of our students receive some form of need-based financial aid and/or merit scholarship. Suffolk University only requires the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for need-based financial aid. Here are some key tips to keep in mind when applying for aid:

  • The FAFSA application opens every year on October 1
    Make sure you select the correct version that corresponds with your student’s entry term
  • Be sure to include Suffolk’s school code of 002218, or else we will not receive the FAFSA data
  • Provide all required electronic signatures—usually at least one parent/guardian must sign
  • Make sure that your student has their social security number on file in the Office of Undergraduate Admission

To get an estimate of what your student may potentially receive for federal financial aid, please utilize our Net Price Calculator. It may also be helpful to view the estimated annual costs for new undergraduate students. Please don't hesitate to contact your assigned financial aid counselor or call the financial services office at 617-573-8470 if you have any questions regarding financial aid.

All applicants will automatically be evaluated for merit-based scholarship at the time of admission. Merit awards are available to both freshman and transfer students, helping to make a Suffolk education more affordable. Our Merit Calculator is designed to assist undergraduate students and their families with an early estimate of the amount of merit scholarship aid they may receive at Suffolk University. Merit scholarship amounts, if applicable, will be listed in a student’s acceptance letter along with whether they have been chosen to participate in our Honors Program.
