Student Financial Aid Office

The NIU Financial Aid Office is a resource for students and parents to answer any questions you might have about how to offset the cost of an NIU education. They are also there to facilitate the application process and offer counseling to those who need it. Check out the Reference and Resource guide to Financial Aid at NIU or Visit the NIU Financial Aid homepage

The majority of NIU students are offered some type of needs-based financial aid, so never assume you will not be eligible. Learn more about eligibility for financial aid.
