Financial Aid for Graduate and First Professional Students

Financial aid awards offered to eligible graduate and first professional students at NSU may consist of a combination of grants, scholarships, student employment, and loans. Grants and scholarships are considered "gift-aid" and generally do not have to be repaid. Student employment and loans are considered "self-help aid" because you must take on additional responsibilities for receiving this type of aid. Student employment requires you to work in exchange for a paycheck, and loans always need to be repaid with interest.
