- Parent Information: Overview
Stevenson University understands the financial challenges facing families with college students. Whether you’ve been saving since the day your child was born, or you’re just starting to think about how to pay for college, financing your child's education is almost certainly on your mind. We believe that we owe our students a quality education at an affordable price. We offer a variety of financial aid packages that combine merit-based aid with state and federal assistance. In fact, roughly ninety percent of SU students receive some sort of financial aid. We want to support you and your family as you explore your financial aid options.
Times are tough. Investing in a college education is a bigger decision than ever, but never has that investment been more important to your son or daughter's future earnings and job security. The average college graduate earns over $1,000,000 more in a lifetime than a worker with only a high school diploma.
Information about each of these topics and most of the information that you will need to apply for financial aid, including the types of aid available and how to apply, can be accessed through Stevenson University’s financial aid web site using the link on this page. We strongly encourage you to spend time reviewing the tools and information there.
Every student applying to the University for admission is encouraged to apply for assistance through the Financial Aid Office. We will determine if your child qualifies for federal, state or institutional grants, federal work-study or federal student loans, or for University scholarships and grants, and we are here to help your family evaluate the financial aid package offered by the University and to help you through the potentially confusing process of financing your education.
