Managing your financial aid at NAU
This is the page is designed to help you navigate financial aid. After you complete the FAFSA, please be sure to regularly check your NAU email and To Do List in LOUIE.
Creating a budget to attend NAU
We have created the budget worksheet so that you are aware of the costs and how to understand the amounts of financial aid you have been offered.
Financial aid disbursements occur Monday through Saturday during each semester, starting on the first official disbursement day (approximately 10 days before the start of each semester). Please be sure all outstanding To Do List items are complete in LOUIE. Some items may prevent your aid from disbursing.
Preparing for each year
The FAFSA opens Oct. 1 each year. Apply early. Scholarship applications are available typically December through March each year to apply to for the upcoming year. Check your email for when these applications will open.
Additional information, such as Financial Aid policies, Rights & Responsibilities, and a Glossary, can be found under the Resources tab.
