Financial Aid

Graduate students must be enrolled full-time to be considered for financial assistance. There are three financial aid options available: student loans, scholarships, and graduate assistantships. Seattle University financial aid is not available for international students; however international students may apply for MBA SEM Scholarships as well as Graduate Assistantships.
MBA SEM Scholarships range from $500 to $3000 per year for students who meet the criteria.

Application Process

To be considered for financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is your application for federal, state, and institutional funds. For further information, contact the Student Financial Services Office.

MBA SEM Scholarships

MBA SEM offers scholarships based on financial need, current and/or prospective academic achievement. All scholarships are financial resources and must be coordinated with other types of financial aid. You must notify the Financial Aid office of any scholarships you receive which do not appear on your original award letter and report whether the scholarships are renewable, so the office can automatically include it with your subsequent awards. Scholarships are awarded at the time of admission, and credited each quarter directly to your student account. 


To be considered for a scholarship, you must be fully admitted (without restrictions) to the MBA SEM degree program and maintain a minimum of six (6) credits of coursework each quarter during the academic year.

Should your enrollment drop below these requirements, the scholarship will be reduced by a percent equal to the reduction in credits, charged against your student account, and any balance owed to the university will be your responsibility. In every instance, it is your responsibility to pay tuition no later than the published quarterly tuition due dates established by Seattle University.
You must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average in your graduate coursework to receive and/or retain a scholarship.


For applications based on financial or merit need, file the online version of the  FAFSA (for U.S. citizens) or the Affidavit of Financial Support (for foreign residents).
