School of Public Health Students

Student Financial Services (SFS) oversees need-based student financial aid for Boston University School of Public Health (SPH) and offers student financial planning services. Depending upon your program, registration status and ability to pay, you may qualify for need-based institutional assistance. If you do not, you may still qualify for federal or other assistance to meet the costs of education, including merit-based aid and departmental or external scholarships.

Ultimately, the burden of paying for your education rests with you. Once your need has been determined and a financial assistance package is offered to you, you must assume responsibility for balancing your personal finances with your tuition obligations. In addition to helping you meet your student assistance needs, SFS can assist you in analyzing your debt threshold relative to your future professional plans, as well as provide a range of financial planning services throughout your time at SPH.

In conjunction with SPH, SFS as appointed Assistant Director Scott Harrison to work specifically with SPH students. Of course other SFS staff members are willing to be of assistance as well and can be reached at (617) 638-5130 or osfs-sph@bu.edu should the need arise. We hope these services and our ongoing support will enhance your BU School of Public Health experience.
