Complete the FAFSA
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and add NSU’s school code (003765). In order to avoid delays and having to wait in lines, early completion of both the admissions and financial aid application process is strongly encouraged. NSU’s priority deadline for completing the FAFSA is March 15. To avoid delay of your financial aid award, complete and return any forms requested by the University.
Review your award letter carefully. Please understand that your financial aid award may not cover the total cost of tuition. Please be prepared to pay the remaining balance or make financial arrangements by the tuition deadline. View the Student Accounts website for more information on payment options.
