Financial Aid Information

Financial aid is available to students in the form of federal student loans, federal TEACH Grant, Maryland state scholarships, and limited institutional assistance. Students interested in receiving financial aid must meet certain eligibility requirements including: be enrolled for at least six credits per semester (half-time enrollment for graduate students), be in good academic standing (see Financial Aid Academic Standards Policy on the web), and be a matriculant in a degree program or pursue a teacher certification or a certificate of advanced study in education (CASE). Students who do not meet these criteria may be able to apply for private student loans.

Students who wish to be considered for financial aid must complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.gov.

Students should complete the FAFSA each year no later than February 15 to be considered for priority awarding of limited institutional and state funds. Students must include Notre Dame's school code of 002065 on the FAFSA to ensure that their FAFSA results are received. Students that meet this deadline receive priority award processing.

Students may be asked to provide documentation such as federal tax transcripts or proof of citizenship  to the Office of Financial Aid to verify information provided on the FAFSA. It is extremely important for students to respond promptly to all requests for additional information. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of the student's financial aid awards.

The Office of Financial Aid website, ndm.edu/financial-aid, provides detailed and up-to-date information on the types of aid available, how to apply, eligibility requirements, policies and procedures, external scholarships for students, deadlines, a checklist, contact information and more.

It is the responsibility of all students to familiarize themselves with the information contained on the financial aid website.

Students have access to their own financial aid data 24 hours a day on WebAdvisor.  New students receive access to WebAdvisor during New Student Orientation.
