Community College Pathways

Financial aid is available for qualified students seeking degrees through the NIU-Community College Pathways.

Financial aid is awarded to a qualified student by the college where the student is seeking his or her degree. If you are currently seeking an associate’s degree, you would apply for financial aid from the community college. If you are currently seeking a bachelor’s degree (because you have already completed an associate’s degree or completing an associate’s degree is not in your plans), you would apply for financial assistance through NIU and would also need to initiate a consortium agreement.
