You must reapply for student loans each year. Returning students do not need to include any parent data.
Who Is Eligible
U.S. citizens, nationals and permanent residents who enroll at least halftime are eligible to apply for federal student loan assistance.
When to Apply
Priority applications were due April 1, 2017. All applications were reviewed in the order they were received. Financial award decision emails were sent on a rolling basis in mid-to-late June.
How to Apply
1. Complete student section of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Returning students do not need to complete the parent section. Use school code 001739—be sure you do not accidentally select Northwestern College while completing the FAFSA.
After the FAFSA is processed (allow two weeks), you will receive a student air report (SAR) summarizing your information. Resolve any incorrect information via the FAFSA website or by returning the corrected and signed SAR. If you do not receive your SAR within four weeks, or if you need to request a duplicate, call 800-433-3243.
2. Complete the University Aid Application online via your to-do list in CAESAR under the 2017-2018 academic year. If you do not see the this form by mid March, please email Cynthia Gonzalez.
