Apply for Aid

Suffolk University is pleased to offer both merit and need based financial aid to graduate students.  Merit based aid is awarded based on the applicant's academic credentials presented on the application for admission. No separate application is required for merit consideration. International students, while not eligible for federal/state financial aid, will be considered for merit funding at the time of admission. 

To apply for financial aid at Suffolk University, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is the only form required for initial financial aid consideration. Deadlines are critical! Please check below for the financial aid deadline that applies to you.

  • For Fall 2014 graduate students, the recommended filing date is April 15, 2014.
  • For Spring 2015 graduate students, the recommended filing date is November 1, 2014.

The Federal Code for Suffolk University is 002218.

It is important that you meet the above deadlines.  The FAFSA can be submitted prior to your tax returns being filed with the IRS.  Also, you should complete your FAFSA prior to these deadlines even if you have not been informed of your acceptance to Suffolk University. 

Current students must complete a FAFSA annually if they wish to receive financial aid consideration.

Important Note Regarding Tax Returns:

Students should not submit copies of 2013 income tax returns. If your application is selected by the Department of Education or Suffolk University, an official IRS tax return transcript may be required. You will be notified if this is necessary.
