Academic and Funding Assistance

We're here to help you every step of your NIU journey, from applying for admission to completing your degree requirements.

Preparing to Attend

Applying to colleges can be confusing. If you're an undocumented student, you can apply to NIU without providing a Social Security number. Read our guidelines for applying.

You also have options for paying for your NIU degree. Learn about financing your education. Be sure to see if you're eligible for NIU's DREAM Action Scholarship.

Pursuing Your Degree

We'll make sure you have everything you need for your classes. If you need school supplies like folders or a backpack, we can help you out.

We can also guide you when it comes to degree requirements. Many programs require you to do some work or research outside of the classroom. Sometimes you have to provide documentation or other information in order to participate.
