Financial aid

Sticking with you, from start to finish

benefits overview

At South University, we don't want a lack of funding to stop you from professional growth. We want you to succeed, so we offer a number of financial aid options to meet your financial needs.
In addition to these options, some South University locations offer institutional aid or operate in states where you may apply for state grants. Please refer to our Financial Aid Guide for further information on possible awards, requirements and application processes. Please contact the location of interest for more information.
To those who qualify, federal financial aid is the first option for a student loan. Types of federal financial aid include the following:
- Federal Grant Programs
- Federal Loan Programs
- Federal Work-Study Programs
Please note that state financial aid varies based on the state of residence of the student and where the school is located. While it is not critical that you have applied to and been accepted by the South University campus location of your choice, it is important that you know which location you are planning to attend. It is also helpful to meet with a financial aid officer at that campus location.

For Washington State residents seeking information and resources about student loan repayment or seeking to submit a complaint relating to your student loans or student loan servicer, please visit or contact the Student Loan Advocate at
