Investing in Education

Meeting the costs of higher education represents a significant investment for most families. At Soka University of America we are committed to taking on a partnership to help you along the way. The Office of Financial Aid partners with students and families in order to ensure that Soka education is accessible to all students who are admitted. In an effort to promote greater diversity and access, SUA has designed a comprehensive merit and need-based financial aid program that ensures the fair distribution of institutional, state, and federal funds.

In the 2015-2016 academic year, 100% of Soka's students, both domestic and international, received grants and scholarships totaling nearly 14 million dollars.  Soka is committed to investing its resources to ensure the success of our students.
