 FAFSA

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 available beginning October 1. 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.
