Exceptions to the enrollment confirmation deposit requirement are occasionally made for reasons of significant financial need, as demonstrated by the FAFSA report and if recommend by the Student Financial Services Office. Typically a waiver means that most costs are met through federal, state and Seattle University need-based grants and scholarships. Students seeking deposit waivers must submit written requests to the Dean of Admissions after receiving their financial aid packages.

A deposit is not required for students admitted for summer, winter and spring quarters. Please contact the Admissions Office to confirm your enrollment.
