2016-2017 Financial Aid Award Notice Delivery Change

Please be advised that the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) will send 2016-2017 financial aid award notifications exclusively by NSU email. Students who are new to NSU will receive their first 2016-2017 financial aid award notification by email and postal service. Students are advised to closely monitor their NSU email for their 2016-2017 financial aid award notifications and other important information.

If you have not yet completed your 2016-2017 FAFSA, you are encouraged to do so as soon as possible for the following reasons:

  • Some aid is awarded on a first-come, first served basis.
  • You do not need your 2015 income tax return to apply now. You may estimate your taxes using your 2014 tax return and update your information once you submit your 2015 income tax return to the IRS. Be sure to take advantage of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool once the IRS has processed your return.
  • Completing your FAFSA now will allow you to plan more efficiently.
  • Many scholarships require you to complete the FAFSA.

Important information on filing the FAFSA, including information on U.S. Citizenship and Financial Aid Eligibility and Selective Service Registration is available on the financial aid website.
