Financial Aid & Billing
Financial Aid Eligibility While Abroad
While enrolled in The N.U.in Program, students who file for financial aid are considered for need-based Northeastern funding only. Grants, loans, and work awards from federal and state sources cannot be applied to the Fall semester while students are abroad with The N.U.in Program. These financial options can be used beginning in the Spring semester for students who qualify. All supplemental loans, including the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan, are available to students and parents beginning in the Spring semester as well.
Financial Aid at Northeastern University
Northeastern combines academic excellence with affordability to make each student and family's investment pay off. More than 80 percent of Northeastern students receive some form of financial aid. A family's financial need, their student's academic promise, and the availability of University funds determine how much aid each student will receive. Supplemental loans and external scholarships may provide additional financial support. In order to be eligible for need-based financial aid, a student must be a US citizen or a Permanent Resident.
The Office of Student Financial Services prides itself on offering expert advice, friendly service, and personalized support. Regardless of their family's income, all students should consider applying for financial aid. Northeastern offers more than $135 million in grant and scholarship assistance, participates in all federal aid programs, and offers information on alternative financing and the Northeastern Payment Plan. Student Financial Services can answer any questions. Please keep in mind that the priority filing date for financial aid applications is February 15.
