About the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office


NIU’s Financial Aid and Scholarship Office helps students and their families navigate the financial aid system. Students often need someone to ask financial questions and to guide them as they apply for the financial help they need to pay for school. Helping students is what we do every day!

We are available to help you by phone and email. Or just stop by the office and meet with us in person.

Our focus is primarily on grants, scholarships, federal loans, private loans, work study and of course the FAFSA.
