Tuition at Stony Brook University is considerably less than the cost of attending a private institution. Financial aid is available to students with documented need. In addition, loans and other funds administered by the school are allocated to all students (regardless of residence) whose financial status warrants the allotment of available support. Admission to the school is determined by the candidate's qualifications and not by the ability to be self-supporting. Once admitted, students may apply for aid. The amount each applicant receives will represent a fair apportionment of aid resources available among the continuing and newly admitted students in the school.
