A variety of programs, including grants, waivers, scholarships, loans, and student employment assist students in financing their education. Financial assistance is available to degree seeking undergraduate and graduate students.
Federal Financial Aid & Loans
The first step in requesting financial aid for both undergraduate and graduate students is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which is available online at fafsa.ed.gov. The priority deadline for financial aid for the following academic year is February 14. The school code for Northern Arizona University is 001082.
Grants are a form of financial aid, based on need, which you do not have to repay. All grants, other than the Pell, are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here for a listing of available grants.
To apply for NAU scholarships, students must complete the NAU Scholarship Application available online. LOUIE log-in information is needed to fill out the scholarship application.
Currently, there are two applications for NAU Foundation scholarships. One is for those scholarships that are applied for through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The other is for those scholarships that are applied for directly through the NAU Foundation. In order to see what your maximum eligibility might be, you must complete both applications.
As some scholarships are need-based, we recommend that students file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in addition to this application.

As a Hispanic-Serving Institution, NAU-Yuma students are eligible to apply for additional scholarships offered through the Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities (HACU). We encourage all students to apply for these HACU scholarships. Deadlines are June of each year.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Public Service Leaders Scholarship Program is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in the opportunity to earn a combined internship and scholarship. Those who successfully complete the program also become permanent employees of USDA.
A Consortium Agreement makes it possible for admitted NAU students to participate in financial aid programs while attending NAU (parent school) and another school (non-parent school) at the same time. If you are registered for credit hours at NAU at another school, click on the Consortium Pre-Qualificaton Checklist and follow the steps to determine if you need a Consortium Agreement.
If you withdraw from either parent or non-parent school, please notify the Office of Student Financial Aid so that we may process the change.
- You can only have one non-parent school
- It is your responsibility to ensure that your courses are transferable
Consortium agreements must be submitted to the NAU-Yuma Office of Financial Aid by:
|Fall 2011||Aug. 15, 2011|
|Spring 2012||Jan. 3, 2012|
|Summer 2012||May 12, 2012|
