Income/Aid Chart


Prospective students and families are often pleasantly surprised by the amount of aid they are eligible for beyond their merit scholarship by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The table below helps demonstrate using data from last fall's admitted freshmen at SXU. It identifies the average SXU merit award, average additional aid issued beyond the merit award, and the total aid for last year's freshmen by family income bands.

While each family's financial situation is different, and the table does not guarantee aid eligibility, one thing is clear -- additional and significant aid is frequently awarded to SXU students based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. File your FAFSA today!
