HOW TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID:

NEW STUDENTS & TRANSFER STUDENTS:

You must be accepted by the Office of Admissions and complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online for the upcoming school year. Before filing a FAFSA, you must obtain a PIN number for both you and one parent (this will be used for your signature on the FAFSA).

    · Be sure to keep a record of your PIN number because this number will be used as your signature on any Federal loans you may apply for.

    · Once all steps above have been completed, the NGU Financial Aid Office will receive your FAFSA electronically within 5-10 days.

    · Approximately 1/3 of all FAFSA’s are selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education. This means the University must “verify” the FAFSA was completed correctly. We will notify you by email (email address submitted to FAFSA) if you are selected.

    · Once the FAFSA has been completely processed, you will receive by mail an award statement packet listing all grants and scholarships you qualify for. For many students, Stafford loan information and instructions will be included in this financial aid packet. Please call the NGU Financial Aid Office to discuss additional loans and amounts and/or visit us on our loan page to find out more about loans.
