All students in the College of Professional Studies are required to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for federal aid programs, as well as a number of institutional funds. The FAFSA is generally available beginning October 1. The 2024-2025 FASFA will be released in December 2023. The priority filing deadline date is three weeks prior to the start of the term. Full-time students who are Massachusetts residents and are interested in the MASS Grant, need to complete the FAFSA prior to May 1.

Designate Northeastern as a recipient of your FAFSA by our school code 002199.

If additional documentation is required to complete the review of your financial aid application, you will be notified in writing.
