2. 乐虎集团 for financial aid and scholarships

80 percent of NDSU students receive more than $120 million in federal, 状态, private and institutional financial aid. All students are encouraged to apply for financial aid and scholarships.

Financial Aid priority deadline
We’ve extended the FAFSA priority deadline to March 1. To apply for federal student aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at studentaid.gov / fafsa. While NDSU's FAFSA priority deadline is March 1 to ensure you receive your award offer early, it can be submitted at any time. Once the FAFSA form has been submitted, your financial aid award offer will be mailed and emailed to you beginning in May. Award offers will continue to be sent on an ongoing basis to those who submit the FAFSA after March 1.

First-Year Student scholarships
We’ve modified our scholarship deadlines to account for the delayed availability of the FAFSA application. NDSU will accept scholarship applications through March 1, 2024. Scholarship offers will be sent on a rolling basis with most offers being sent in May. More information on first-year scholarships can be found 在线这里

Why Choose NDSU?

When I toured campus, I fell in love with how pretty it is. I could see myself making friends, joining clubs and growing as a person here at NDSU.

My experience at NDSU has been amazing. I joined a few organizations, which have helped me make so many new friends and connections. It has made campus seem smaller and it’s nice to run into a familiar face.

My favorite thing about NDSU is the amount of events and opportunities to meet people and make new friends.

My advice to new students is to try to meet as many new people as you can at the beginning of your NDSU journey. I have learned to socialize more and after awhile it became easier to meet new people.
