Affording an NDSU Education

NDSU provides an education that is academically rigorous and affordable. To help you pay for tuition and other costs, we offer a variety of need-based and merit-based awards.

To be considered for need-based awards, we encourage you to complete a FAFSA when you apply. You can also get additional resources from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
