Current Student Financial Aid
Step 1: Complete the FAFSA
The FAFSA helps NNU determine a student’s need and eligibility for federal grants and loans by evaluating your family’s financial ability to pay for college. The FAFSA is available after October 1 and will be used to determine your financial aid for the following academic year. For the largest amount of Federal Aid, NNU encourages you to complete your FAFSA by January 15 each year. Students and parents can complete the FAFSA by going to fafsa.gov. The FAFSA can be submitted online by signing with an FSA ID assigned to you and/or your parent.
Families completing the FAFSA for the 2017-2018 academic year will use their income numbers. The FAFSA can then be updated when your tax return is filed. You can provide this update a couple of weeks after you have electronically filed your income tax return by returning to the FAFSA web site and using the FAFSA corrections process to update your FAFSA with the IRS Data Retrieval process. If you are eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, we highly recommend that you do so. It’s the easiest way to provide your tax data and it’s the best way of ensuring that your FAFSA has accurate tax information. Help using the FAFSA IRS Data Retrieval process.
Our school code is 001624.
Step 2: Complete the Following Steps for Financial Aid
Log on to the Portal at my.nnu.edu using your NNU ID number. Click on “Financial Aid and Student Accounts” and then click on “Financial Aid Awards”. You will be able to accept or decline any award amounts listed on your financial aid award letter. Any new aid added will show in a “Hold” status until you accept the award.
The Portal section “Required Documents” will let you know about any documents that need to be completed by you so the Office of Financial Aid can finalize your award.
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 studentloans.gov. Sign-in with your student FSA ID. Students who borrowed a federal student loan in the last year do not need to complete this step.
