Congratulations and welcome to NDNU!

We’re thrilled that you will be joining the NDNU community and are busy planning for your arrival. You probably have lots of questions about next steps now that you have been admitted. Can I visit campus? How can I let you know I’m attending? When is orientation? How do I arrange a tuition payment plan? Where will I be living? Don’t worry! We’re here to help make your transition to NDNU an easy one.

There are a few items that will need your immediate attention. Start planning for your arrival on campus by completing the following steps:

What you need to do before you start your classes

checkmarkApply for Financial Aid

If you have not yet applied for financial aid, please do so as soon as possible by completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This can be done online at NDNU’s institutional code is 001179.

If you are an admitted student who has applied for financial aid, but has not yet received your award letter, please feel free to follow up on your application by contacting the Financial Aid Office at 650-508-3600. Please understand that it takes some time, once a student is admitted, for the Financial Aid Office to process each aid request. Please also contact them if you have received your award letter and have questions about it.
