About NSU Financial Aid

Welcome to NSU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA)! Here you will find everything you need to know about student financial aid, including how to apply, financial aid deadlines, and types of aid available to graduate and undergraduate students, including Florida student financial aid. Our office administers federal, state, and university financial aid programs such as grants, loans, scholarships, and veterans benefits. Please take a moment to explore our site!

It's FAFSA time!As of January 1, 2016, the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available at

The FAFSA determines your eligibility for grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study programs, and is the essential first step in receiving financial aid from federal, state, and private sources.

File your FAFSA as soon as possible for the following reasons

  • The sooner you apply for financial aid, the better chance you have of receiving the maximum amount of funds.
  • You do not need your 2015 income tax return to apply. You may estimate your income and tax figures using your 2014 tax return and update your information once you submit your 2015 income tax return to the IRS. Once you have filed your 2015 tax return, it is highly recommended that you correct your FAFSA by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows you to import your tax data to your FAFSA directly from the IRS.

  • Completing your FAFSA early will allow you to plan more efficiently.
  • Many scholarships require you to complete the FAFSA.

Take Advantage of the IRS Retrieval Process – Expected to be available in early February 2016

The IRS Data Retrieval Process allows eligible federal tax return filers to retrieve information from their submitted income tax return while completing the FAFSA. The retrieval process is available for filers of both the English and Spanish versions of the FAFSA on the Web. Nova Southeastern University encourages students to take advantage of this feature.

The Department of Education considers data transferred through the IRS Data Retrieval System as equivalent to an IRS form. This is good news for students selected for verification. If IRS data transferred to a student's FAFSA remains unaltered, the student may not be required to submit tax documentation for verification purposes. Students who are selected for verification and did not use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool may be required to submit a line-by-line transcript of their federal income tax return to be obtained from the IRS.
