Federal Aid and Tuition Assistance

There are a number of resources available to you when evaluating how to pay for your master’s degree. Some tuition assistance programs might be available to you through your employer, external scholarships, military and veteran benefits, or federal financial aid programs.

Financial aid is determined by the need and cost of attendance. Your financial need is the difference between the cost of your education and your financial ability to pay for it. Your financial need is determined by an analysis of the information provided on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible, and make sure to contact our Student Financial Services department. The Seattle U School of Law FAFSA code 003790.

We want to help you understand your Financial Aid options, please review our Financial Aid Brochure.

Seattle University School of Law’s Student Financial Services office is committed to providing quality student-centered service and financial resources to help students pursue their education. As a student at Seattle University School of Law, you may be eligible for the following Financial Aid Programs. We also offer a payment plan through the law school.
