Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The FAFSA is available beginning October 1st each year and can be completed online. You must reapply each year.
For maximum aid consideration and to help ensure your aid is in place by the time tuition is due, please file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually by March 1.
NMU's Federal School Code: 002301
Link your tax return information using the Data Retrieval Tool found in the “Income Information” sections of the FAFSA.
We strongly recommend you create an FSA ID, a username and password combination that allows you to sign your FAFSA® form electronically. Your FSA ID also can be used to access the myStudentAid app and access certain information online. While you can get your FSA ID as you’re completing the FAFSA form online, getting it ahead of time and using it to begin your FAFSA form on fafsa.gov or on the myStudentAid mobile app cuts down on errors and delays. Find out how to get an FSA ID and what to do if you forgot your FSA ID.
