Financial Aid

Although this catalog contains much useful information about financial aid and associated policies and procedures, changes may occur during the year that might affect any aid a student may receive. For the most up-to-date information, students are encouraged to go to the SU Financial Aid Office website at and review the material posted there.

The information on the financial aid website includes extensive and detailed information about the types of aid (and the rules governing them), how to apply for aid, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), policies and procedures, forms, and contains links to a number of other helpful resources like the U.S. Department of Education and the Maryland Higher Education Commission. Also included are links to a number of short videos (Financial Aid TV) that explain most aspects of financial aid. Some information and current scholarship announcements are posted on the Financial Aid Office Facebook page at

Financing higher education is an important concern for many students and parents. Stevenson offers a strong financial aid program to help qualified students meet their expenses. Financial aid is provided through scholarships, grants, loans, and employment. It is the goal of Stevenson University to provide financial assistance to as many students as possible who demonstrate financial need and who meet individual program eligibility requirements. Types of financial assistance available to students attending Stevenson University can be divided into three major categories: Stevenson University scholarship and grant programs, federal financial aid programs, and Maryland state programs. Qualified students interested in a military career may also be eligible to receive a scholarship through the University’s Reserve Officers Training Corps. Additional information on ROTC is available in the "Life at Stevenson" section of this catalog.
