Apply for Financial Aid, Scholarships and Housing 

Once students are admitted to UND, they should take these next steps to get ready to join the Fighting Hawks family. 


Students may be eligible for free money and low-interest loans to help fund their education in as little as 30 minutes with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. 

If they haven’t already done so, make sure they use their 2021 income taxes to fill out their 2023-24 FAFSA at The experts say the earlier the better. That’s because the FAFSA application is what determines your students eligibility for all kinds of financial aid — state, federal and institutional — including everything from grants to scholarships and low-interest loans to work study. 

Don’t forget: Use UND School Code 003005 and never assume students won’t qualify for aid. Many factors other than income come into play. 

Apply early. Funding is not guaranteed after the Feb. 1 priority deadline. 


Act fast to cash in on UND’s Scholarship Central. Our one-stop-shop for more than 975 scholarships is open!  

Once students are admitted to UND, all they need to do is fill out one easy application, and the database automatically will match them with all the scholarships for which they qualify. Students don’t have to write 975 cover letters or ask dozens of people to write nice things about them. It’s one and done! 

Incoming students must apply by the Feb. 1 deadline. 


All first-year freshmen are required to live on campus for their first full academic year or receive an approved exemption. Quickness counts. And with three new residence halls available (McVey, Brannon, and West), the options have never been better.  

Get an inside look at housing options today with a virtual tour. 

Students who apply for housing by the Feb. 1 priority deadline will get dibs on the first round of residence hall selection.
