TUITION & FINANCIAL AID

Financial Aid
The price you see in the "Undergraduate Costs" section of this page is a list of the costs associated with coming to NNU. It is important to know, however, that the majority of students enrolled at NNU do not pay full price. They receive scholarships and other forms of financial aid. In fact, the average financial aid an incoming NNU student received in 2018-19 is almost $28,000.
Understanding how financial aid changes the price you pay to attend NNU is a critical step in the enrollment process. There are many different ways you can lighten the financial load of an NNU education.  Please contact the Office of Financial Aid so we can help you find the best financial aid possible.
Scholarships
We believe a Christian education is worth the price, but we don't want you to do it alone. Through the efforts of hundreds of generous donors, the academic scholarships listed here are made available to incoming freshman students as part of a financial aid package. Eligibility is based on the criteria listed. Need-based assistance through financial aid is also available to those who qualify.
Academic Scholarship
The 2019-2020 Academic Scholarship is given to incoming freshmen who display excellence in academic achievement. This scholarship must be applied to tuition costs. Renewal is based upon maintaining an NNU cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. Consult the Office of Financial Aid for more details.
2019-2020 Academic Scholarships are as follows:
  • $16,000 - President's Scholarship​
  • $14,000 - Dean's Scholarship
  • $12,000 - Wesley Scholarship
  • $10,000 - Riley Scholarship

By the following dates you must either pay in full or establish a payment plan*.
2020-21 academic year due dates are: Fall Semester: August 28, 2020 and Spring Semester: January 8, 2021.
For a current statement of your account you may visit the NNU portal and generate your Course and Fee Statement. Be sure to select the session that you want to view. This creates a .pdf document for you to view. Calculate your charges minus the aid you will be using.
By the above dates, the student account must be covered by a combination of the following:
  • Paid In Full - Pay online at the NNU portal.
  • International Students may pay in your own currency at the flywire website.
  • Monthly Payment Plan - Enroll through Tuition Management Systems.
  • Military Benefits - The NNU Business Office must be aware of these benefits in advance of the due date and the benefits must be paid directly to NNU in order for these to be considered a component of satisfactory payment arrangements.
  • Financial Aid - You must have completed paperwork and be waiting for disbursement of Federal Direct loans and/or other aid. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for information regarding eligibility and availability of aid.
Any student NOT falling into a combination of the above categories will be charged the published late fee. Interest may be applied to unpaid balances at the monthly rate of 1.25%, posted on the last day of each month. When a student is no longer enrolled at NNU and a balance remains on their account, the student is responsible for paying the University's cost of collection. This includes but is not limited to, collection agency fees, and/or reasonable attorney fees.
A $20 charge will be assessed for each check returned for insufficient funds.
Refunds: If a student receives more financial aid than needed to cover tuition and fees, a refund will be issued within 14 days. Checks are issued each Friday. Direct deposit is available by completing the direct deposit request through your NNU portal.

Withdrawal

All students withdrawing from NNU must complete the "Request for Withdrawal from School" form available from the Office of Academic Advising. All withdrawals are subject to a $100 withdrawal fee if the withdrawal occurs after the add/drop date of the semester.
Exceptions to the refund schedule listed below will be considered for cases of medical or other hardship on a case-by-case basis upon request of the student and submission of appropriate documentation.
Tuition, Fees, Room and Board: Students who withdraw from school prior to or on the last day to add courses for the semester shall receive a refund of 100% of tuition and fees charged. Students withdrawing after the last day to add courses for the semester shall receive a prorated refund of tuition and fees. Students are not eligible for a refund of charges after 60% of the semester. Room and board charges for the semester are refunded on a prorated basis. The withdrawal date is defined as the earlier of: (1) the date that the student began the withdrawal process or officially notified NNU of intent to withdraw, or (2) for those students who leave school without notifying an appropriate NNU official, (a) the midpoint of the semester, or (b) the last day of documented "academic-related activity". The Director of Academic Advising determines the official date of withdrawal.
There are no refunds for incomplete independent study or correspondence courses. There are generally no refunds for enrolled students withdrawing solely from the dorm after the last day to add courses. There are prorated refunds for withdrawing solely from the board plan after the start of the semester.
Refund Distribution. Students who withdraw from NNU and have received federal financial aid may be required to return all or part of that aid based on the percent of the semester that the student is no longer enrolled. When a refund to federal programs is required, following is the refund distribution:
  1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  2. Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  3. Federal Perkins Loan
  4. Federal PLUS Loan
  5. Federal Pell Grant
  6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  7. Leveraging Education Assistance Partnership Grants (LEAP)
  8. Other Title IV Aid Programs
  9. Other Federal Sources of Aid
  10. Other State, Private or Institutional Aid
  11. Parents or other third party, and then the Student
No refund is made to the student when all charges have been met by federal or institutional aid, or when the amount of refund exceeds cash payment made by the student.
Refunds to NNU's institutional aid programs are based on the tuition and fees withdrawal rate (i.e., if one-half tuition and fees are refunded, one-half of any institutional aid will be refunded to institutional programs).
Repayment of Unearned Aid. Students who receive federal financial aid and withdraw from NNU may be required to repay the appropriate program a percentage of their unearned aid. The responsibility to repay unearned aid is shared by NNU and the student in proportion to the aid each is assumed to possess. NNU's share is the lesser of:
  1. The total amount of unearned aid,
  2. NNU's charges multiplied times the percentage of aid that was unearned, and
  3. NNU's share is allocated among the Title IV programs in an order specified by law.
The student's share is the difference between the total unearned aid and NNU's share. After the student's share is fully allocated among any of the Title IV loan programs, any amount owed to a federal grant program is reduced by half.
