Financial Aid

Title IV School Code: 003161

The Northeastern State University Office of Student Financial Services is dedicated to informing and educating you on options regarding federal student aid. The NSU Office of Financial Aid staff adhere to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) code of conduct. Our main purpose is to provide you with the opportunity to reach your educational goals by ensuring you receive all eligible federal aid.

The NSU Office of Student Financial Services recommends all NSU financial aid recipients check their NSU gmail account as well as their goNSU student account regularly. Our office transmits important information and reminders to students via these accounts.

Northeastern State University students are expected to be responsible community members.  The student rights and responsibilities are outlined in our Student Conduct Code which can be found here in the Student Handbook.  Our goal is to promote a safe living and learning environment and to develop healthy and responsible decision-making.  Any questions, policy violations, or other concerns may be addressed by contacting Student Affairs.

NEW INFORMATION - PRIOR PRIOR YEAR (PPY)

 In Fall 2015 the President announced two major changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process. While traditionally the FAFSA filing cycle begins on January 1 of the year preceding the award/academic year (e.g., January 1, 2016, for the 2016-2017 award/academic year), beginning with the 2017–2018 FAFSA cycle, the application will become available to students and their families three months earlier on October 1 (e.g., October 1, 2016, for the 2017-2018 award/academic year).

The second change announced by the President is that, again beginning with the 2017-2018 cycle, the FAFSA will collect income information from the tax/calendar year one year earlier than has been used in the past. Thus for the 2017-2018 FAFSA, students and families will provide income information from calendar year 2015 and not from calendar year 2016. Because of this, almost all tax return filers will be able to electronically transfer their tax information directly into their FAFSA by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT).
