About NSU Financial Aid

Welcome to NSU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA)! Here you will find everything you need to know about student financial aid, including how to apply, financial aid deadlines, and types of aid available to graduate and undergraduate students, including Florida student financial aid. Our office administers federal, state, and university financial aid programs such as grants, loans, scholarships, and veterans benefits. Please take a moment to explore our site!


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for aid in the 2018-2019 academic year is now available at The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), which allows you to import your (your parent’s) IRS tax information into your FAFSA, is available with enhanced privacy protection. Not everyone is eligible to use the IRS DRT, and the IRS DRT does not input all the financial information required on the FAFSA form. Therefore, you should have your 2016 tax return and 2016 IRS W-2 available for reference. Use NSU's Federal Code 001509 to ensure NSU receives your FAFSA information.

For additional filing tips, visit Homeroom, the official blog of the U.S. Department of Education. 

The Fall/Winter 2017-18 Dollar$ and $ense newsletter is now available. Look for each issue which includes financial aid information and other important Enrollment and Student Services updates.
