Adult and Professional Programs Financial Aid

 Financial Aid Timeline

Step 1: Apply and be Accepted to NNU

The first step to getting financial aid is to apply to the program you are interested in at NNU. After you have applied and been accepted, the NNU Office of Financial Aid will review your FAFSA (if submitted) to determine aid eligibility.

Step 2: Complete the FAFSA

We highly encourage every student to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. The FAFSA must be completed by the student (and may require parent information) and can be submitted online by signing with a PIN number assigned to the student (and to the parent if needed). Apply for a PIN at

NNU encourages you to complete your FAFSA by April 15th. This aid assists you with funding for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, August through July (for example, a 2010-2011 FAFSA would cover Fall 2010-Summer 2011).

Our school code is 001624.

Step 3: Complete the Following Steps for Financial Aid

Watch the mail for your Financial Aid Award Notification. 

If your FAFSA information was chosen for verification, please submit required documents to the Office of Financial Aid. Follow the instructions on our verification worksheet for the status that applies to you (either dependent or independent ) and turn that worksheet and any required documents in to the Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible.   Please be prompt in responding to any requests for information from the Office of Financial Aid. If verification is not complete prior to the last day of enrollment, federal aid eligibility will be lost.

If you plan to borrow Federal student loans and have not borrowed previously, borrowed more than 10 years ago or paid off your prior student loans, you need to complete entrance counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) online at Sign-in with your student FAFSA PIN number. Students who borrowed a federal student loan in the last year do not need to complete these steps.

Federal funding is always disbursed to your NNU student account after you have enrolled in and attended your first day of class.  If you need books before your first day of class, and your aid is guaranteed and ready to disburse, you may contact the Business Office to request a book voucher a week before classes begin.

Don't forget to re-apply for financial aid every year!
