You may be eligible for financial aid and not even know it! We encourage every student to apply for financial aid.

Federal Aid

You can start this process by completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at FAFSA.ed.gov. The FAFSA opens every year on October 1st, and you are able to fill it out at any point during the academic year. The application will take two weeks to reach SUU after you submit it.

The FAFSA will consider you for grants, work-study, and subsidized/unsubsidized loans. While grants, work-study, and subsidized loans are “need-based” aid which not every student will qualify for, every student will at least be offered unsubsidized loans. These loans have a much better interest rate than private loans do, so if you need to take out loans for your schooling, this is the best place to start.

How to Apply for Federal Financial Aid

Scholarships

There are multiple scholarship opportunities available to students. The applications for Current Student and Departmental Scholarships opens November 1st and closes on February 1st each year.

You can apply for these scholarships through your MySUU Portal by clicking on the “Scholarships” link, which is located under the “APPS” heading. Many of these scholarships require that you have a FAFSA application on file. It is important to fill out the FAFSA even if you don’t think you will qualify for need-based aid.

Scholarship Information

We also encourage you to look into private scholarships. Here is a list of private scholarship websites that SUU has vetted and found do disburse funds to students:

To see your financial aid award, log in to MySUU Portal, click on “Financial Aid” then “Award”. View your award by “Aid Year”. Select the correct aid year, then click the tab that says “Award Overview”. If you wish to accept your award, you can select the “Accept Award Offer” tab.

How to Accept Your Scholarship Award

If you have questions about your award, FAFSA, or any financial aid options that may be available, you can reach out to our financial aid advisor Jaden Hunt at jadenhunt@suu.edu, or the SUU Financial Aid Office at finaid@suu.edu or by phone at (435) 586-7735
