2014-15 ACADEMIC YEAR

Federal financial aid is still available for the spring 2015 and summer 2015 semesters! If you are interested in financial aid for spring 2015 and/or summer 2015 and have not already filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), file a 2014-15 FAFSA.  If you attended another school in 2014-15, notify your prior school that you will be attending Purdue University North Central. Also, be sure to let the Financial Aid Office at your prior school know that you will no longer be attending and request that any remaining eligible aid is cancelled.  You may only receive aid at one school each term. Additional information is available at Transferring Your Financial Aid.

STATE FINANCIAL AID

Indiana awards and scholarships are administered by the Division of Student Financial Aid (SFA) and include the Frank O’Bannon Grant, The 21st Century Scholars Award and the Part-Time Grant.  You may apply for state aid at Purdue University North Central (PNC) by filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA must be received by the Federal Processor for state financial aid consideration after January 1 but on or before March 10 each year and you should list PNC as your first Indiana college choice (school code 001826). SFA has a self-service website, called eStudent, for students that have filed a FAFSA as residents of the State of Indiana.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress status is updated each semester after grades have been posted. If your status is Satisfactory you continue to remain eligible for financial aid. If your status is Warning or Probationary you continue to remain eligible for financial aid, however, you must meet all Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements in order to receive financial aid beyond the Warning or Probationary term. If your status is Ineligible you are not eligible for financial aid until you once again meet all of the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements or have an approved appeal and academic plan.
