What Are Some of The Best Ways to Fund a Higher Education at SU?

Many families mistakenly think they don't qualify for aid and prevent themselves from receiving financial aid by failing to apply for it. 除了, there are a few sources of aid such as unsubsidized 工作人员ord and PLUS 贷款 that are available regardless of need. The FAFSA form is free and no matter your income we encourage all students and families to complete the FAFSA
  • Estimate how much income your family can set aside every month and then multiply that amount by 48 months (i.e. 四年制学位). Take a look at Maryland 529 or other state tax-advantaged savings plans designed to encourage saving for college.
