Invest in your success with an education at Seattle University. Grounded in the Jesuit tradition, we dedicate ourselves to the academic excellence of our students and foster the drive to effect change in local, national and global communities. In our commitment to that mission, we strive to make your education affordable and accessible.
While the steps can seem daunting, our Student Financial Services and Financial Aid website contains the information you need on bills and payment, scholarships, completing your FAFSA and more. Whether you are an undergraduate, graduate, transfer or international student, we work with all students to determine the financial opportunities available.
There are many ways to fund your future. In addition to applying for Financial Aid using the FAFSA, you may also choose to apply for additional student loans, take part in work study or institutional employment, or apply for scholarships available through your department.
Over 92% of Seattle U undergraduates receive financial aid.
Over 68% of Seattle U graduate students receive financial aid.
Federal Student Aid and the Biden-Harris Administration have announced loan forgiveness plans of up to $20,000 for prior Pell-Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for all other loan borrowers. To be eligible borrower’s annual income must be below $125,000 (individuals) and $250,000 (married couples/head of households). If the U.S. Department of Education doesn’t have your income data – or if you don’t know if the U.S. Department of Education has your income data, the Administration will launch a simple application in the coming weeks. Borrowers can view their loan balances and check their Pell Grant status by logging into their Federal Student Aid account online at studentaid.gov.
To access the Federal Student Aid website you can visit studentaid.gov.
