Suffolk students achieve their graduate education goals through a combination of personal funds, scholarships and grants, loans, employer sponsorships, and external funding. There are three main forms of financial aid available to Suffolk graduate students through the Office of Student Financial Services: Grants and scholarships (no repayment required); Loans (offered under terms of repayment, normally with interest); Employment (usually a job within the University). Dollar amounts will vary.
A student may be offered financial aid in any of the above forms, or in a combination referred to as a “package.” Scholarships and grants are awards based on academic achievement, program of study, work experience, and/or financial need (based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid – FAFSA) and do not need to be repaid. Grants and scholarships are gift aid, which means that they are not required to be repaid or earned.
