FAFSA Update: The 2024-2025 FAFSA is available to complete online. Due to Federal delays in releasing FAFSA information, Northeastern will require additional time to process your offer of financial assistance. Please visit our FAFSA Updates Page for more information and timely announcements.

Effective Fall 2023, Northeastern University has implemented a new policy regarding late fees. Learn more about this policy.

 

Types of Aid

Work

Federal Work-Study is a need-based federally subsidized program that provides part-time employment to undergraduate students. To be eligible, students must demonstrate financial need, as determined by the FAFSA. For students who would like to be considered for Federal Work-Study, it is important to ensure the FAFSA is submitted prior to the priority filing deadline date, as this is a limited fund.  Students who secure a work study position are typically paid through direct deposit and may use their earnings to help with expenses during the academic year.

There are also a number of general student employment opportunities available for eligible students. The amount earned will be determined by the pay rate and hours worked.
