The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the most important step in planning and paying for college expenses. Your FAFSA determines how much aid you can receive, and you’ll automatically be considered for certain federal and institutional grants. Be sure to list Northern Arizona University (code 001082) on your FAFSA.
We can help academically motivated students achieve their educational goals. You may be eligible for one of the following:
Jacks Transfer Award

Eligibility: Transfer students who meet certain need-based criteria, as determined by the FAFSA.

All Arizona Academic Team Scholarship
Amount: 100 percent of resident tuition, available for 10 consecutive spring and fall terms or 60 credits, whichever is met first.
