How do I receive financial aid?
If you've accepted financial aid, it will automatically be applied to your account. Financial aid is normally applied after the last day to add/drop a course. The Student Financial Aid Office will verify that the number of credits you're enrolled in corresponds with the amount of aid you'll be receiving. Any adjustments will be made to your account before aid is applied.
What if my federal aid is not enough to cover my bill?
We'll do everything possible to help you cover your bill, but if federal aid is not enough we encourage you to apply for private scholarships and use scholarship search services. Current UND students can check out Scholarship Central (UND's scholarship database) to find scholarships in our academic departments.
UND works with various lenders that offer private education loans to help cover the cost of your remaining balance. FASTChoice can help you compare lenders, interest rates, borrowing amounts, and loan eligibility.
