FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID
In order to apply for financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applicants are required to provide the name of National American University and the University’s school code (004057) on the FAFSA.
If you completed a “Renewal Notice” or have previously completed a FAFSA for the current year at a different school, you do not have to file a new FAFSA.
After submitting the FAFSA, you will receive a “Student Aid Report” (SAR) from the US Department of Education. You should review the report for accuracy.
