Tuition & Aid

That feeling when you have a trusted partner to help you navigate the financial aid process is priceless. The Office of Student Financial Services is here to guide you on your way to financing your Suffolk education.

You Have Options

We feel a quality education should be available to every student, so we offer a broad range of financial aid solutions including scholarships and grants, loans, and work-study opportunities, including both merit- and need-based aid to eligible students.

  • We’ll automatically consider you for merit-based scholarships
  • 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 offers stipends of up to $3,500 to support students participating in non-paying summer opportunities
  • We offer scholarships to transfer students who are members of Phi Theta Kappa and Alpha Beta Gamma
  • Our Nathan Miller Scholars Program awards full-tuition scholarships to deserving students in the Boston Public Schools system

FAFSA

The Department of Education launched the 2024-25 FAFSA form and the FAFSA is now consistently available to be completed. While Suffolk University had been anticipating access to completed FAFSA data in late January, the Department of Education recently announced FAFSA data will be delayed for all colleges and universities until March.

Suffolk University remains committed to providing an affordable education to our students. While the 2024-25 FAFSA is delayed, we strongly encourage all eligible students to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. As soon as we are able to access 2024-25 data, Suffolk will begin the review of financial aid eligibility for students who plan to enroll for the upcoming academic year.

As always, if you need assistance you can contact the Office of Student Financial Services.
