Graduate Financial Aid
The mission of the Financial Aid Office is to work with graduate students to help make studying at NDNU affordable. The Financial Aid Office, located in St Mary’s Hall, offers both financial assistance and referrals to other resources. Prospective graduate students are encouraged to seek specialized scholarships in their disciplines; many community, professional, and fraternal organizations also offer scholarships.
For financial aid purposes, students are considered to be full-time graduate students when enrolled in 9 units. Graduate students are eligible for loan programs when enrolled on at least a half-time, 3-unit basis. Graduate students with Unclassified Graduate status are not eligible for financial aid.
Students who plan to utilize federal, state, or NDNU financial aid in financing their graduate degree or credential must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Most graduate students are eligible for Direct loans and Grad PLUS loans.
