Your Education Is Accessible

Our goal at Southern University, particularly in the Financial Aid Department, is to Educate, Motivate, and Advocate for our students. We believe that every student should have access to quality education, regardless of their background.

Financial aid plays a crucial role in assisting students and their families in covering college costs. It encompasses funding from federal, state, university, and private programs, with awards determined based on both need and merit. It's important to note that every student, whether they are from out-of-state, graduate, international, online, or military backgrounds, is eligible for some form of assistance.

We understand that the process of navigating financial aid can seem overwhelming, but please rest assured that the Office of Financial Aid is here to support you. Our dedicated team is available to guide you through each step of the application process and answer any questions you may have.

Remember, our mission is to make education accessible to all, and we are committed to ensuring that you have the necessary resources to pursue your academic goals.
