  • Paying for College

    At Seattle University, nearly 90 percent of students receive financial aid. Last year, Seattle University awarded more than $69 million in scholarships, grants, loans, and employment aid to undergraduates—including $26 million from the university's own funds. Some financial aid is purely need-based. Generous scholarships are also available to recognize and support strong academic and extra curricular achievement, regardless of financial need.

    Determining your eligibility for financial aid is easy—just apply. You can get an application from our Student Financial Services office, your high school or college counselor, or online using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Student Financial Services office can also help with information about grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study programs on- and off-campus.

    Our guarantee to you and your family

    We know it’s essential for you and your family to know the resources will be there to finish your education—not just for one year but for all for four years. That’s why we offer you a guarantee.

    When a financial aid offer is made to an incoming student, the amount of institutional gift aid--scholarships and grants-- remains constant for all four years. The amount that is guaranteed is subject to a student’s continuous enrollment at Seattle University, verification of a student's application data and compliance with the university's Satisfactory Academic Progress policy (i.e. completion of a minimum number of credits each year with a minimum grade point average).

    Apply for financial aid. We know you’re making a significant investment in your education. We’re ready to make a significant investment in you.
