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. Awarding for freshman students has begun! Awarding for sophomores, juniors and seniors will begin in May after spring 2015 grades are posted and Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress has been run.


The Financial Aid Office will begin determining summer aid eligibility in early April for students who are registered for the summer term.  Click on Summer 2015 for important information.

Complete the following items in preparation for summer 2015:

  • Register for your summer 2015 classes
  • Confirm your enrollment for summer (confirm enrollment each semester)
  • Make payment arrangements for any balance not covered by financial aid by the May 1, 2015 summer payment deadline
  • Check you Satisfactory Academic Progress status for summer in May shortly after spring grades have posted

Note: if your status changes to ineligible you are responsible for payment in full. You may appeal an ineligible status.


Federal financial aid is still available for the summer 2015 semester! If you are interested in financial aid for 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.

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.
