Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarship Eligibility

If you would like to learn more about your scholarship eligibility, please admissions [at] (email the Admissions Office) with your highest composite ACT or SAT critical reading and math scores, and your cumulative grade point average. Transfer students who have completed more than 30 hours may send their cumulative college grade point average to receive scholarship eligibility information.

NWU awards scholarships based on academic performance, talent, need and other factors. We also connect students and families with additional outside scholarship opportunities. Learn about scholarship sources, amounts and criteria.

Grants represent money for college from federal, state or other sources that need not be repaid. Find out about a variety of grant opportunities.

Student loans fall into two categories: subsidized and unsubsidized. Subsidized loans don’t begin charging interest until after you’re out of school. Unsubsidized ones are less restrictive, but begin charging interest earlier.

Campus Employment
Approximately 600 NWU students have jobs all over campus. Oftentimes, their work responsibilities complement their areas of study and career goals.
