Financial Aid can help pay for tuition, fees, books, supplies and even living expenses. Northwest Campus works closely with funding agencies within the region and across the state to locate available funding resources for our students.
Advisors provide individualized financial aid advising and FAFSA workshops in villages
throughout the region.
If you would like to see a workshop held in your community or need assistance filling out your scholarship applications please contact a Northwest Campus advisor.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will determine your eligibility for federal grants and loans, state grants and scholarships and some private scholarships. The FAFSA should be submitted every year and is available October 1 for the following fall. There is not a deadline for the FAFSA, but we recommend completing before February 15 to be considered for all UAF scholarships. The state of Alaska requires the FAFSA by June 30 for state aid, including the Alaska Performance Scholarship.

You can receive NWC financial aid. Generally to receive financial aid you need to be a student who is enrolled in a degree program and attending college full or part-time. The majority of students attending Northwest Campus are less than part-time, so the requirements for our financial aid differ.
To be eligible to receive NWC financial aid you must be enrolled for a NWC course or plan to enroll, have financial need, and have a minimum 2.0 GPA, and satisfactorily completed previously funded courses. Due to limited funds, not all applicants are awarded scholarships.
