Financial Aid Pathfinder

Your Progress:

You may be selected for the verification process.

Each year  the U.S. Department of Education selects a portion of all FAFSA applicants for verification. If selected, you will be asked to provide documentation to the university confirming the information entered on your FAFSA.

  • If you are selected for verification, you will be notified in the comment section of your Student Aid Report.
  • NMU's financial aid office will contact you to identify documents needed to complete the verification process.
Verification Worksheet

NMU processes your FAFSA.

It takes Northern Michigan University up to two weeks to receive your FAFSA information from the date you complete the FAFSA.

  • You will be considered for financial aid if you have been admitted to a degree-seeking program.
  • NMU financial aid staff checks for problems and/or inconsistencies in your FAFSA application information.
