Financing

There are numerous financial aid opportunities waiting for you as a student at Seattle University. We believe in every student’s ability to become a business leader who can drive positive change, and we don’t want finances to stand in your way.

There are several opportunities for government-sponsored financial aid available to students at Seattle University. File your FAFSA application as early as possible to help ensure that you have ample time to finalize funding for your degree program. This can be completed even before submitting your application for admission to the Early Career MBA program. Start your FAFSA now.

The Graduate Admissions team and Student Financial Services at Seattle University are here to help you find the best possible solutions for graduate financial aid. To research financial aid options visit Financing Your Education.

Early Career MBA Scholarships

A limited number of scholarships are available to Early Career MBA students through the Albers School of Business and Economics. These are partial scholarships based on need, and are designed to assist with, but not cover the full cost of tuition. Approximately one half of our Early Career MBA students apply for and are granted a scholarship to assist with their education. The average scholarship ranges from $3,600 to $4,800 and is divided equally over Fall, Winter and Spring quarters of the program. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer full ride/100% scholarships to any student at the graduate level. 

If you would like to apply, you will need to submit a separate application. The scholarship application must be completed and included with your initial program application.

To be considered for an Early Career MBA scholarship, you will need to complete both your program application as well as your scholarship application, during Round 1 or Round 2 (March 1st or May 1st). Applications for scholarship received after the May 1 deadline will only be considered if funds are still available.
