Suffolk University is pleased to provide prospective students who are serving or have previously served in the military with helpful tools when considering college enrollment. Please take a few moments to review the following information:
The College Scorecard was created by the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center to assist you with the search for a college. You can use the College Scorecard to find out more about a college’s affordability and value, so you can make more informed decisions about which college to attend.
The College Navigator is a consumer tool which provides information about colleges and universities. Prospective students can find information on an institution’s tuition and fees, retention and graduation rates, financial aid data, and student loan default rates. A cost calculator and school comparison tool is also available.
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a standardized financial aid award letter designed to simplify information that prospective students receive about costs and financial aid. This tool can be used to compare aid offers from multiple institutions, allowing for an informed decision on where to enroll. Suffolk University provides a customized Financial Aid Shopping Sheet to all prospective students who are identified as eligible for military educational benefits. After a student has been awarded, an individualized copy will be sent to the address on file and will be available via the MySuffolk portal.
Paying for College
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau provides this tool for prospective students to make good decisions about financing a college education. Students can learn more about student loan repayment options and compare financial aid offers at the Paying for College website.
