Being an international student, I was under the assumption that I do not qualify for any scholarships offered at NIU. However, I set up an interview with Jon as soon as I paid the first installment of my tuition just to get some advice on how best to manage my expenses along with the cost of attending NIU. Not only did Jon help me build a budget to structure my living expenses, but he also enlightened me to the various scholarships NIU offers that I am eligible for.
