Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarship Central by Feb. 1

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid for the 2024-25 academic year is now open. Go to to start the application and FAFSA will use your 2022 income taxes.

The priority deadline to apply is Feb. 1..

The FAFSA is what determines your students’ eligibility for all kinds of financial aid — state, federal and institutional — and includes everything from grants to scholarships, loans to work study, and waivers.

Here’s what you and your students need to know:

  • Students and families can learn more about FAFSA and the whole financial aid process on UND’s website.
  • Students should include Federal Code 003005 on their FAFSA to have UND to consider their eligibility status.
  • You should never assume a student will not qualify for aid. Many factors other than income come into play.

But probably the most important thing for students to remember is to apply. The second most important? Apply early. No matter how generous the aid, it never lasts forever.

Scholarship Central 

Don’t forget to have your students complete their Scholarship Central applications. Once students are admitted to UND, all they need to do is fill out one application by the Feb. 1 deadline, and the database automatically will match them with all the scholarships for which they qualify.
