Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year is an important step in the financial aid process and must be completed by the student and/or parents and sent to the Federal Processor after January 1st. The FAFSA can be submitted online by signing with a PIN number assigned to the student and to the parent. Apply for a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov.
NNU encourages you to complete your FAFSA by March 1st. The FAFSA helps NNU to determine a students need and eligibility for federal funds typically used for the Fall and Spring semesters, August through May (for example, a 2010-2011 FAFSA could be used for classes between August 2010-May 2011). Some aid may be available for the summer, contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
Our school code is 001624.
Watch the mail starting in April for your Financial Aid Award Notification. Information on monthly payment plans and other financing options may be found online. Please refer to the Financial Aid Packet you received with your award notification for more details
If your FAFSA information was chosen for verification, it is important to respond to requests for information from the Office of Financial Aid right away. 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. 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, you need to complete entrance counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) online at www.studentloans.gov. 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, simply accept, decline or reduce your loan amount on the student portal at MyNNU.
