Student Freedom Initiative

Norfolk State University does not endorse Student Freedom Initiative’s Income Contingent Alternative to Parent Plus and other private education loan products. Norfolk State University is not affiliated with Student Freedom Initiative.

While general programming by Student Freedom Initiative is for all students, Student Freedom Agreement is an income-contingent funding alternative for eligible students. NSU students who meet eligibility requirements may qualify for up to $20,000 per academic year to cover the remainder of the cost of their attending the university. Applications may be offered to students who would traditionally apply for funding sources such other as private student loans and Parent PLUS loans.
