2023-2024 Catalog

NDSCS is a state-supported college. This state support covers a portion of all instructional costs to the student and is the largest form of financial support. To help students pay their costs for tuition and fees, room, board, books and supplies, students and/or parents receive financial aid. Approximately 94 percent of NDSCS students receive some type of financial aid. Four different types of financial aid are offered: (1) grants, (2) loans, (3) employment, and (4) scholarships.

Students attending NDSCS must apply for admission to be considered for financial aid. All aid applicants are expected to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA). To be considered for the maximum number of financial aid sources, the FAFSA should be submitted by April 1 to meet the priority deadline date of April 15. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA online at www.studentaid.gov. Once application is made, please allow 6-8 weeks for processing. Official financial aid awards are emailed to students in June.

More information, policies and applications on financial aid can be found under the Paying for College section at www.NDSCS.edu.
