Types of Aid

Financial Aid

The purpose of Norfolk State University's financial aid program is to provide assistance to qualified students who, without such aid, would be unable to attend the university. Aid is awarded on the basis of need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 


Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are thousands of them, offered by schools, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations.
