Arizona Promise Program

Helping Arizona resident students pay for college

For eligible students, NAU will cover the remaining cost of tuition, mandatory fees, as well as college/program and Honors fees not covered by other grant and scholarship funding.

Award amount

The award amount varies by student, but eligible students will receive enough funding to cover all tuition and mandatory fees not already covered by other grants or scholarships.

How to apply

You don’t need to apply! If you are determined eligible to receive Arizona Promise Program funding, any remaining tuition, mandatory fees, college/program and Honors fees remaining unpaid by other grants or scholarships will be covered automatically.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible for the Arizona Promise Program, students must:

  • Be an Arizona resident
  • Be admitted to NAU as a degree-seeking first-year student by May 1
  • Attend NAU at the Flagstaff campus
  • File your FAFSA by the May 1 priority deadline
  • Be enrolled full-time (12+ credits per semester)
  • Be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant as determined by your FAFSA

Renewal criteria

After your first year, you may continue to receive aid to cover your tuition, mandatory fees, college/program and Honors fees (for up to eight consecutive semesters total) if:

  • You are eligible for the Pell Grant (as determined by the FAFSA)
  • You file your FAFSA and have a complete and verified file by May 1 each year

Note: the Arizona Promise Program does not cover expenses outside of tuition and mandatory fees, such as housing or food, but other scholarships or grants might!
