How to Apply for Federal Financial Aid
To apply for federal student aid, you need to complete the FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and quick, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school. You must complete the FAFSA for each academic year; be sure to include the NDSU School Code of 002997 so we get your information. The priority funding deadline date for 2017-2018 is February 1, 2017.
It is important to complete the FAFSA every year as NDSU and the North Dakota state scholarship/grant office uses your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid.
