Act now for the scholarships and housing students want
Timing can be everything, Students who take care of their University of North Dakota business now — rather than a month or two later — have the best chance to be awarded scholarships and the first choice of housing and courses for fall 2023. Here’s what students need to do now:
- Complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid at studentaid.gov. They’ll use 2021 income tax info, so they already have everything they need. (Except maybe UND’s code, 003005.)
- Every student should FINISH THEIR FAFSA. The calculation used to determine what aid students are eligible for includes more than just family income — don’t assume students won’t be eligible for aid!
- Most people qualify for some type of aid, including low-interest federal student loans.
- The priority deadline for filing the FAFSA is Feb. 1.
- Confirm enrollment for fall 2023 with a $200 nonrefundable deposit, if students haven’t done so already.
- This is a down payment — not an additional charge — that’s applied to their first tuition payment.
- Students are required to confirm enrollment before registering for classes. The sooner they do it, the more choices they will have.
- Apply for housing. All first-year freshmen are required to live on campus for their first full academic year or receive an approved exemption.
- Quickness counts. Students who apply by the March 1 priority deadline will get dibs on the first round of residence hall selection.
- Consider signing up for McVey or Brannon, our newly renovated residence halls that opened this year.
Students also can get a jump on meeting new friends by joining the UND Class of 2027 Facebook group.
