Important Notes

  • Financial Aid

    If you plan to apply for federal financial aid, please submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid ( The Office of Financial Aid has sent award letters to students who have completed a FAFSA.

    Need-based aid is awarded through the Office of Financial Aid. Suffolk Endowed or "Named" scholarships are funded by the gifts from alumni and friends of Suffolk University Law School. The funds are awarded each year to students who meet the donors' designated criteria, with annual awards in the range of $200-3,000. The determination of the award recipients are generally based on financial need and scholastic achievement. Students who wish to be considered for Suffolk Endowed and Named scholarships should complete the Suffolk Law Institutional Financial Aid Application in addition to FAFSA.

    For more info on how to apply, visit our Financial Aid website. You should complete these forms as soon as possible.

    You may use income estimates on both forms if you have not yet completed your 2014 income taxes. If you use estimates, you must later update the FAFSA form on-line using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. If you file your taxes electronically, you must wait for the IRS to process them (generally two weeks) before attempting to use the Data Retrieval process.
