Paying for College

Estimate your tuition and fees. Tuition and fee tables are available from the Tuition & Fees section.

Visit or call the Financial Aid Office. Applying early for financial aid increases your chances of receiving an award. The financial aid deadline for fall applies for the whole year, so meet the priority deadline even if you don't plan to enroll until winter or spring.

If your employer or another agency will be paying your tuition, contact the Financial Aid Office before registering.

To determine your eligibility for worker retraining support as a displaced worker, contact Workforce Education.

If you do not have enough money to pay your tuition all at once, you may enroll in an online deferred payment plan provided by a partnership between North and nelnet Business Solutions. Get more details on e-Cashier here.

Search the Web for information about scholarships not offered through the school.
