Financial Aid Guide For New Students

This Financial Aid Guide will provide detailed information and guide you through the steps you need to complete for your aid to be processed and disbursed on time.

Net Price Calculator

Based on the information you enter, the Net Price Calculator will return an estimate of typical expenses for a student like you to attend NDSU and an estimate of financial aid that you may be eligible to receive.
