Financial Aid

The School of Labor and Urban Studies (SLU) is committed to providing students with a quality education that is affordable.

There are many financial aid options for individuals of all backgrounds. Our financial aid counselors work with students to combine federal and state funds, public and private scholarships, grants, loans, or Veterans benefits to help pay for their education:

SLU also has its own scholarships and tuition support funds, including emergency grants for students experiencing hardship. 

SLU students also make the most of their union and employer benefits, including tuition deferments and free or reduced rate programs. For more information about this and other payment options, such as the University payment plan, please contact
