STAR Program eligibility
Who can participate in the NAU STAR program?
The program is open to first-year students who are committed to earning their bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University. To be eligible for the STAR Program, you must meet the following criteria:
- Arizona resident
- attending NAU in the upcoming fall semester
- first-generation college student
- have completed a FAFSA for the current and previous years; summer program funding is based on a student’s FAFSA from the previous year
How much does STAR cost?
Students and their families do not pay to participate in STAR. Costs are paid for by the student’s financial aid and include:
- meal plan
- tuition and fees
Students can only attend if they have completed the prior year’s FAFSA by early spring. For example, if a student is coming to NAU for the 2023–2024 academic year, they and their parents must complete the 2022–2023 FAFSA.
