  1. Your graduate tuition is billed differently than undergraduate tuition. You are only expected to pay for the credits you are enrolled in each quarter plus any fees.
  2. Compare more than just cost. While cost is very important, it shouldn’t be the sole factor in choosing a program. Consider value of a program including the quality and reputation of an institution, program structure, personal fit, professional outcomes, and scholarships awarded. Program specific comparisons include:
    1. Is the program committed to educational justice and community engagement?
    2. Is the program cohort-based, emphasizing collaboration & inclusive discourse?
    3. Does the program offer flexible scheduling, meeting on weekends and in the summer?
    4. Is the program organized around inquiry, reflection and leadership study?
    5. Will the program help you establish a network of professional learning and support?
    6. Will the program prepare you to lead?
  3. Explore outside avenues. While Seattle University has scholarships available for students, additional support may be found from outside agencies like the Catholic School Special Tuition Grant or other resources like these. We encourage you to explore these options and then conduct your own search. For veterans, we are a Yellow Ribbon School.
  4. File for financial aid. Students need to submit a FAFSA so that our financial aid office can determine eligibility for loans and scholarships. International students are not eligible for federal funding or Seattle University’s scholarships. More information can be found here. Undocumented students should consult Student Financial Services prior to submitting a FAFSA. Additional resources for DACA students may be found here.

We understand this is a significant decision and we want to be a resource for you. Our goal is to help you learn more about our program and how it fits your educational and professional needs.
