We believe that all NIU students should have academic, financial and career plans. Student Financial Advising Services can help you (and your family members) develop a financial plan and navigate the complicated financial processes at NIU.

We supplement the services provided by The Financial Aid and Scholarship Office and the Office of the Bursar by providing comprehensive financial advising. There are many on and off-campus resources available to assist you through your NIU journey, and we can connect you with the experts when necessary. We want students to understand that the investment in their education now will lead to lifelong benefits. We provide tools related to budgeting, loan repayment and other critical real-world financial skills.
