Financial Aid

Welcome to the Purdue North Central Office of Financial Aid


File your 2015-16 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at Purdue North Central (school code 001826). A 2015-16 FAFSA should be filed by students who will be enrolled in fall 2015, spring 2016 and summer 2016.

Spring awarding is underway. If you attended another school in the fall, see Transfer Your Financial Aid for important information. There are several important dates and deadlines approaching for the spring semester, get a list at Important Dates and Deadlines.

Degree seeking students that wish to take classes at another school in addition to Purdue North Central should complete a Consortium Agreement. You may only receive aid at one school each term.

The Financial Aid Process webpage has additional information on filing your FAFSA, verification and awarding.


Indiana awards and scholarships are administered by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and include the Frank O’Bannon Grant, The 21st Century Scholars Award and the Adult Student Grant (formerly 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.

  • Check Self-Service Banner for important messages and to review any documents that may be required from you at this time.
  • Check the Financial Aid home page on a regular basis for helpful information.
