Types of Financial Aid
Financial aid is a broad term that represents any financial assistance you receive to help pay for your education. There are several types of financial aid. You'll need to repay some types, while others are gifts that don't require you to pay them back.
Complete the FAFSA
The only way to know if you're eligible to receive financial aid—and the amount you may receive—is by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is the only application UND requires to determine your eligibility for federal and North Dakota state financial aid programs.
The aid you’re eligible to receive is determined from the financial information you provide in your FAFSA and the cost to attend UND. On average, UND students receive $11,700 annually in financial assistance.
Financial Aid Steps to Complete
Use the Financial Aid Guide to ensure that your financial aid will be applied to your bill. These steps also will help you determine how much you may owe (if anything) at the start of the semester and what options you have to help cover those costs.
