Financial Aid

NAU students receive more than $325 million annually in scholarships, grants, and other financial aid. When you plan ahead and apply early, you’ll be better prepared to evaluate financial aid opportunities—you might be eligible for more assistance than you think.


Scholarships To activate the Scholarships tab, press your spacebar.

Scholarships are financial aid awards that do not need to be paid back. Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit, financial need, and personal background.

Grants To activate the Grants tab, press your spacebar.

Grants are a need-based form of financial assistance that you do not have to repay. A separate application is not required, as grants are awarded based on information from your FAFSA.

Loans To activate the Loans tab, press your spacebar.

A student loan is borrowed money that must be repaid, and can only be used for educational expenses. Student loans have fees with an average repayment period of 10 years.

Student Employment To activate the Student Employment tab, press your spacebar.

Employment opportunities are available to students looking to help cover the cost of their education. Explore job options through Federal Work-Study and Handshake.


Net Price Calculator

You can estimate your cost of attendance using our Net Price Calculator. Your cost of attendance is also used to determine how much financial aid you may receive.
