Financial Aid Programs

As a Seattle University law student, you are likely to be eligible for several or all of the following programs:

Credit-based Loans

Alternative loan programs are credit-based loans available to help those students whose needs are not fully met by other government loan programs, institutional or outside scholarships, and/or employment.  They include the federal Grad PLUS and private, commercial student loans. 

Government Student Loans

The unsubsidized Stafford loan is available up to $20,500 annually at a fixed interest rate established every July 1. Students must be enrolled at least half-time and receive a six-month grace period prior to repayment after graduation or dropping below half-time enrollment.

Grad PLUS loans are credit-based federal loans available to help those students whose needs are not fully met by other government loan programs, institutional or outside scholarships, and/or employment and who choose not to borrow private loans (also credit-based).

Outside Scholarships

Scholarships

Scholarships awarded by Seattle University School of Law do not require a separate application process except for the Scholars for Justice Award, The Douglas R Nash Native American Law ScholarshipLaw Librarianship Scholarship, and the Outlaws Civil Rights Scholarship.

Work-study and Student Employment

Through either need-based federal work-study or through non work-study (non-need-based work), on-campus employment offers students the opportunity to work in one of the available positions at the Law School or for positions located elsewhere on the Seattle University campus.
