A Sustained Commitment

Northeastern combines academic excellence with affordability to make your investment pay off. Your family’s financial need, your academic potential, and the availability of University funds determine how much aid you receive. 78% of Northeastern students receive some form of financial aid. Supplemental loans and external scholarships may provide additional financial support. In order to be eligible for need-based financial aid, a student must be a U.S. citizen or a Permanent Resident.

The Office of Student Financial Services is committed to doing its best to make your Northeastern experience affordable. And we are dedicated to sustaining that commitment the whole time you are here and to providing friendly, personalized support along the way. That’s the Northeastern Promise.

Northeastern offers more than $204 million in grant and scholarship assistance, participates in federal aid programs, and offers information on alternative financing and the Northeastern Payment Plan. Student Financial Services can answer any questions you have. The priority filing date for financial aid applications is February 15, 2014.
