Financial Aid

Northern Michigan University’s Financial Aid Office is dedicated to helping students navigate the financial aid process and advising students of other available financial resources to ensure appropriate funding. Financial aid opportunities may differ between university programs (e.g. Global Campus versus Marquette Campus). Please contact NMU's Financial Aid Office to explore your individual need and circumstance. Information on financial aid for NMU Global Campus students can be found here.

JUST GETTING STARTED?

CREATE AN FSA ID

We strongly recommend you create an FSA ID, a username and password combination that allows you to sign your FAFSA® form electronically. Your FSA ID also can be used to access the myStudentAid app and access certain information online. While you can get your FSA ID as you’re completing the FAFSA form online, getting it ahead of time and using it to begin your FAFSA form on fafsa.gov or on the myStudentAid mobile app cuts down on errors and delays. Find out how to get an FSA ID and what to do if you forgot your FSA ID.

Important note: If you’re a dependent student, one of your parents whose information is reported on the FAFSA form will also need an FSA ID so that he or she can sign your application electronically. If your parent doesn’t have a Social Security number (SSN), your parent won’t be able to create an FSA ID (which requires an SSN). This means you’ll have to select the option to print a signature page when you get to the end of your online FAFSA form.

2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Available October 1, 2019

For maximum aid consideration and to help ensure your aid is in place by the time tuition is due, please file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid annually by March 1.

You can also complete the 2020-21 FAFSA form using the myStudentAid app. Download the myStudentAid app in the Apple App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). The myFAFSA component—which is used to complete the FAFSA form—is the app’s featured function.
