Suffolk offers a broad range of loans to eligible students. You are encouraged to connect with the Office of Student Financial Services to discuss your options. Additionally, you are encouraged to apply for financial aid as soon as you submit the application for admission. You should not wait until you have received an offer of admission to apply.
U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents may file the FAFSA

All applicants are automatically considered for merit-based awards at the time of admission. There is no separate application to be considered for a merit award. Awards generally are based on prior academic achievement, work experience, standardized test scores, and fit in the program.
The majority of merit-based assistance is awarded to students entering in the fall semester. Extremely limited merit funding is offered to spring semester entries and no merit funds are available for summer enrollment.
